Product Description:

The king of physical comedy and a master of the deadpan, Academy Award-winner Buster Keaton was one of the most engaging, influential figures in early cinema. This entry in the Biography series chronicles the actor's career from his celebrated days in Vaudeville to his 1950s return after a vice-riddled period of obscurity.

Description by New Video Group:

A comedic luminary in the silent era of Hollywood filmmaking, Academy Award®-winner Buster Keaton is best remembered for his rolls in such legendary classics as The General (1927), The Navigator (1924), and Our Hospitality (1923).
BIOGRAPHY® narrates the comprehensive story of Keaton's fascinating - and
at times tragic - life, from his turn-of-the-century vaudeville upbringing to
his 1950s comeback. Keaton's star soared in the 1920s with a string of brilliant films, but he soon experienced harder times, including bouts with alcoholism and mental illness. Pushing past these obstacles, he returned to the spotlight in the mid-20th century with the re-release of his silent masterpieces. Although often overshadowed by his contemporary Charlie Chaplin, many consider Keaton - or "The Michelangelo of Silent Comedy" - to be the most talented entertainer of his time.
Thorough and engrossing, BUSTER KEATON chronicles the life and times of one of the most innovative and influential performers in cinematic history.
