      Product Description

      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. Using Chaplin s old Hollywood studios in 1920, Keaton s sophisticated technical inventiveness coupled with his haunted-yet-handsome Stone Face persona, created a succession of the most timeless, classic comedy shorts ever realised. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the following films in a four-disc box set, with audio commentary by Joseph McBride on six of the films, and a 180-page book: The Butcher Boy (1917) The Rough House (1917) His Wedding Night (1917) Oh, Doctor! (1917) Coney Island (1917) Out West (1918) The Bell Boy (1918) Moonshine (1918) Good Night Nurse (1918) The Cook (1918) Backstage (1919) The Hayseed (1919) The Garage (1919) The High Sign * (finished 1920, released 1921) One Week* (1920) Convict 13* (1920) The Scarecrow (1920) Neighbors (1920) The Haunted House (1921) Hard Luck (1921) The Goat (1921) The Playhouse* (1921) The Boat* (1921) The Paleface (1922) Cops* (1922) My Wife s Relations (1922) The Blacksmith (1922) The Frozen North (1922) Daydreams (1922) The Electric House (1922) The Balloonatic (1923) The Love Nest (1923) *features audio commentary
