Buster Keaton: 3 Films (Volume 3) (Masters of Cinema) Standard Edition Blu-ray Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Eureka Entertainment to re-issue BUSTER KEATON: 3 FILMS (Volume 3), a further collection of unparalleled films from the silent comedy genius, on Blu-ray from 19 July 2021. Between 1920 and 1929, Buster Keaton created a peerless run of feature films that established him as arguably the greatest actor-director in the history of the moviesĀ. Collected here are three further films from that era; Our Hospitality, Go West and College. Our Hospitality (1923 - dir. Buster Keaton & John G. Blystone) Often cited as one of his most significant filmsas well as one of his funniest1923's... Our Hospitality, which Keaton co-directed with John G. Blystone, is his take on the notorious feud between the Hatfield and McCoy clans (here renamed the Canfields and the McKays). Keaton is luckless William McKay, who must journey down South to view his lacklustre inheritance, only to be seduced along the way by one of the Canfields, Virginia, who lures him to her family's house so that the men of the clan can shoot him down. But William knows that the Canfield men won't kill him as long as he's in their house, so he endeavours to stay put there, against all obstacles. With its attention to 19th-century period detail and emphasis on integrating the gags into the storyline, Our Hospitality was not just a breakthrough in Keaton's career, but it was also noted even during its release as an advancement in the medium, with Variety proclaiming, It marks a step forward in the production of picture comedies. From a 2K restoration. Go West (1925 - dir. Buster Keaton) Keaton is at his most stone-faced as the memorably named Friendless in Go West, an irresistible blend of deadpan darkness and spectacular comic set-pieces. Friendless abandons city life to ride the rails to an Arizona ranch, where his ineptitude at almost everything only makes his nickname even more accurate. But when his one beloved companion, a cow named Brown Eyes, seems to be headed to a slaughterhouse fate, Friendless intervenes, and the resulting cattle stampede through the streets of Los Angeles is one of Keaton's most understandably famous and acclaimed sequences. From a 4K restoration. College (1927 - dir. James W. Horne & Buster Keaton) Keaton follows up The General with a higher education comedy that seems to take a cue from Harold Lloyd's The Freshman (1925). Keaton is bookworm Ronald, whose high school girl Mary ditches him for someone with the athletic prowess that Ronald lacks. Determined to win her back, Ronald enters college with an eye on sports, but two left feet. From a 2K restoration. [show more]
