Synopsis

Buster Keaton, along with Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, was one of the great comedians of the silent era and his lack of sentimentality, economy of style and consistent deadpan expression (he was nicknamed 'The Great Stone Face') give him a uniquely timeless quality. His films were also characterised by virtuoso set-piece sequences and incredible stunts that, amazingly, were all performed by Keaton and achieved without any camera trickery, and this collection of 32 of his short films is a fine testament to his genius. This boxed-set, released in 2007, spans the period 1917 to 1923.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
