Synopsis:
Buster Keaton (1895-1966) is one of the greatest artists in cinema history. After a very early start in vaudeville with his parents (as The Human Mop), Keaton was as old as the cinema when he began his career in film at the age of twenty-one with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. Burlesque yet sensitive, Keaton inspired European surrealists and created the funniest and most astonishing character of the silent era. His short films were whirlwinds of precisely choreographed humour and nonsense, and have been rarely screened in recent years. A new generation are now able to rediscover the timeless appeal of Keaton's comic marvels with this complete collection of short films from 1917-1923.
