Plot: Buster Keaton's mastery of physical comedy is on superb display in these four amazing short films. The first and longest, COLLEGE, details his exploits as a brainy student who goes to ridiculous lengths to become an athlete in order to impress his sweetheart (Ann Cornwall). Featuring a hilarious crew-racing finale, and an extended track and field sequence, this is a superb demonstration of Keaton's prowess. The DVD includes additional films. In THE ELECTRIC HOUSE, we find Keaton installing all sorts of impressive contraptions into his professor's house, including an early escalator staircase. Unfortunately, a rival sabotages his wiring, and the house goes crazy. HARD LUCK features Keaton as a guy at the literal end of his rope whose attempts at suicide only seem to land him in more trouble. THE BLACKSMITH takes place inside an old-time auto shop where Keaton destroys some cars, shoes some horses, and still gets the girl. They're all peerless gems of silent comedy, with musical scores.
