Product Description:

The following classics: "Seven Chances" (1925), "Neighbors" (1917), and "The Balloonatic" (1923). Silent.

Plot Synopsis:

A boxed set of four videos starring the brilliant silent clown Buster Keaton. Most of this material has never been released on video before.
This collection features some of Keaton's best-known and most popular works -- such as "The Navigator" -- as well as some rare gems like the early short "The Scarecrow", made with fellow comedian Fatty Arbuckle.
Each cassette contains one feature and two shorts -- creating a delightful comic program that captures Keaton's versatility and genius.
