Product Notes

For Buster Keaton, the era of the talkies was a tumultuous time. As a result of signing with MGM, the quality, the quality of his ambitious, eclectic comedies began to decline and in 1934, he signed a contract with Earle W. Hammons Educational Pictures which, despite it's name, specialized in comedy short subjects. Keaton's move to Educational was a return to his roots, crafting a stream of two reel comedies in rapid succession, as he had done in the early 1920s, when he first refined his cinematic craft. The films Buster Keaton made with Educational Pictures (ALL sixteen of which are collected here) pay homage to his earlier work, but at the same time incorporated the element of sound, all while exploring new possibilities for his recurring comic persona, Elmer. This FIVE HOUR+ collection features all 16 Educational Pictures shorts (14 of which have never been available on DVD until now) including: The Gold Ghost, Allez Oop, Palooka from Paducah, One Run Elmer, Hayseed Romance, Tars and Stripes, the E-Flat Man, the Timid Young Man, Three on a Limb, Grand Slam Opera, Blue Blazes, the Chemist, Mixed Magic, Jail Bait, Ditto and Love Nest on Wheels.
