Synopsis

3-Disc box set. 

 

Authorized by the Buster Keaton estate and mastered in HD from the 35mm archival film elements, The Short Films Collection gathers all of Keaton's solo silent comedies in one monumental three-disc set. Widely considered to be among Keaton's finest work, the nineteen two-reel shorts are loaded with laughs, punctuated by breath-taking stunts, and bursting with raw creativity. Over the course of this three-year period, Keaton evolved from a successful slapstick comedian into one of cinema's most inventive visual stylists, and became an enduring icon of American popular culture.
