| Blu Ray

Eureka Entertainment to re-release BUSTER KEATON 3 FILMS (Volume 2), a collection of essential films from the true genius of silent comedy, on Blu-ray as a part of The Masters of Cinema Series from 18 January 2021. Presented from stunning 4K restorations, The Masters of Cinema Series presents three films by the great Buster Keaton on Blu-ray. The Navigator (1924, dir. Buster Keaton & Donald Crisp) Wealthy Rollo Treadway (Keaton) suddenly decides to propose to his neighbour across the street, Betsy O'Brien (Kathryn McGuire), and sends his servant to book passage... for a honeymoon sea cruise to Honolulu. When Betsy rejects his sudden offer however, he decides to go on the trip anyway, boarding without delay that night. Because the pier number is partially covered, he ends up on the wrong ship, the Navigator, which Betsy's rich father has just sold to a small country at war. Keaton was unhappy with the audience response to Sherlock Jr., and endeavoured to make a follow up that was both exciting and successful. The result was the biggest hit of Keaton's career. Seven Chances (1925, dir. Buster Keaton) Jimmy Shannon (Keaton) learns he is to inherit seven million dollars, with a catch. He will only get the money if he is married by 7pm on his 27th birthday, which happens to be that same day! What follows is an incredible series of escalating set-pieces that could only have come from the genius of Buster Keaton. Battling Butler (1926, dir. Buster Keaton) A rich, spoiled dandy (Keaton) pretends to be a champion boxer, Battling Butler , to impress the family of the girl he loves. When the real Butler shows up, he decided to humiliate the imposter by having him fight the Alabama Murderer¬Ě!
