Sherlock Jr. and Three Ages Two Disc Set $19.00

Widely regarded as one of the most visually inventive silent comedies ever made, SHERLOCK JR. offers fast-paced slapstick as well as a brilliant deconstruction of the filmmaking process. Keaton stars as a movie theatre projectionist who dreams of becoming a super-sleuth and, in one breathtaking sequence, literally steps into the screen to bring his fantasies to life.

Another comedy for film-lovers (that plays upon the conventions of cinema), THREE AGES is a clever spoof of D.W. Griffithís Intolerance. In Keatonís multi-narrative epic, manís primal quest for love is played out in the Stone Age, Ancient Rome, and the Jazz Age.

The films in this collection have been mastered in HD from archival 35mm elements, authorized by the Buster Keaton Estate.
