Buster Keaton: Volume 1

Comedy genius Buster Keaton stars in and directs two genuine silent film classics. "Our Hospitality" (1923, 75 mins) - Keaton plays a New Yorker who returns to his roots in the South and finds himself involved in a feud between his family and those of the woman he loves. Packed with superb visuals and sight gags including a train journey, which has to be seen to be believed. "Sherlock, Jr." (1924, 44 mins) - A mild mannered theater projectionist dreams of becoming a great detective when he enters the film he is projecting. This is one of Keaton's finest masterpieces which within its forty-four minutes manages to present a dazzling display of cinematic inventiveness, non-stop comedy and daredevil stunts.
