Buster Keaton: The Complete Short Films 1917-1923

A succession of the most timeless, classic comedy shorts ever realised in a luxurious four-disc box set, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK SYNOPSIS: Containing thirty-two films - with a running time of over 740 minutes - this collection documents Buster Keaton's short films between 1917-1923. Capturing Keaton's first steps in front of a camera this box set charts his early association with ex-Keystone Kop Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle through to starring in, headlining, and directing his own box office smash hits.
