College (1927): Coming hard on the heels of Keaton's comic masterpiece, The General, this was a relaxing romp in both setting and approach after the exacting precision of the American Civil War comic-drama.

Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928): Steamboat Bill is William Canfield (Ernest Torrence), the larger-than-life owner of the stern-wheeler 'Stonewall Jackson' which he has operated for many years with his first (and only) mate played by Tom Lewis. Almost the entire town is owned by entrepreneur and businessman J.J. King who has now introduced his own stern-wheeler, a pleasure palace named 'King', to take all the trade and drive 'Stonewall Jackson' off the river and Steamboat Bill out of business.

William Canfield, Jr. (Buster Keaton), has been at college in Boston but a telegram informs Steamboat Bill that the son he has not seen since a baby is going to visit. Expecting a giant of a youth to appear from the train, Steamboat Bill and his mate are amused and perplexed to find the small and skinny Keaton appears at the station. Steamboat Bill Jr. gets kitted out to work on the 'Stonewall Jackson' and then discovers that he is a college friend of Kitty, the pretty daughter of none other than J.J. King! Can Steamboat Bill Jr. save the 'Stonewall Jackson' from the machinations of the greedy businessman?

Three Ages (1923): This clever parody of D.W. Griffith's Intolerance follows Buster's hard-luck romantic misadventures throughout world history from the dawn of man in the Stone Age through the gladiator arenas of Ancient Rome to the city streets of the American Jazz era...

A brilliant historical satire teeming with inventive flourishes, this is a silent comedy of truly epic proportions!
