In 1995, Kino International released one of the best boxed sets of the past decade--The Art of Buster Keaton. Available initially on VHS and laserdisc, this magnificent set contained all of Keaton's silent-era feature films, as well as a choice selection of his silent shorts. Now, Kino is releasing this same material on DVD. The first group of releases -- The General, Steamboat Bill, Jr., and Battling Butler -- is now available. And the second set -- The Three Ages, The Navigator, Go West, Our Hospitality, and Sherlock Jr. -- should be available by the time you read this review (street date for these titles: November 23rd). The final installment -- The Saphead, Seven Chances, and College -- is scheduled for release January 11, 2000.
