A brilliant historical satire teeming with inventive flourishes, Buster Keaton's Three Ages is a silent comedy of truly epic proportions. This clever parody of D.W. Girffith's Intolerance follows Buster's hard-luck romantic misadventures thoughout world history: from the dawn of man in the Stone Age, through the gladiatorial arenas of Ancient Rome to the city streets of the American Jazz Era.

By flavoring the ancient stories with bits of modern comedy, Keaton not only won raucous laughter from the audience but forged an original approach to history, humor and cinema that clearly foreshadowed the Mel Brooks and Monty Python films that followed half a century later.

Accompanying Three Ages on this DVD are two rarely seen short works: The Goat, and My Wife's Relations, a comedy of domestic turmoil that seems to reflect some of the tensions between Keaton and the Talmadges, his real life in-laws at the time.
