Buster Keaton was an American comic actor, filmmaker, producer and writer. Perhaps best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, his career arguably began when he was just 18 months of age until 1966 when Keaton was 71, his last role being in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”Keaton was recognized as the seventh-greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly and in 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Keaton the 21st-greatest male star of all time. Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton's `extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, when he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies.`. This 2 DVD collection represents some of his best works from that period. Orson Welles stated that Keaton's The General is the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made. A 2002 worldwide poll by Sight & Sound ranked Keaton's The General as the 15th best film of all time. Three other Keaton films received votes in the magazine's survey: Our Hospitality, Sherlock, Jr. and The Navigator. This collection contains 2 of his most beloved works, “The General” and “Steamboat Bill, Jr.”
