      Keaton’s Silent Shorts: Beyond the Laughter By Gabriella Oldman. An interesting analysis of Keaton’s silent shorts. A little on the dry, academic side, but an attractive book that makes some good points. In print. Buster Keaton’s Sherlock Jr. .   Of Silent Films’ “Big Three” (Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd) Buster Keaton is more famous and critically acclaimed today, than he was in the ’s (the guy is Box Office Gold, believe me, I’ve seen it!) and the reason is simple: his films still seem awfully relevant and modern, maybe even more so than when they were first shown.

    He made 19 shorts before graduating to features and those films are masterpieces of silent comedy. Kino has, for the first time (in R1 at least) released all of Keaton's solo silent shorts in one incredible Blu-ray set. With newly remastered prints and some nice bonus features, this is an must-buy collection.
