About this item

Buster Keaton goes back to school and stages a hilarious send-up of university life in "College". Keaton stars as Ronald, an idealistic freshman who attends Clayton College in pursuit of higher learning, but finds himself instead embroiled in a war of athletics as he fights for the heart of his beloved coed, Mary (Anne Cornwall). More than he had in any other feature, Keaton stretched the boundaries of solo physical comedy. In a series of unforgettable vignettes, stone-faced Ronald tries his hand as a baseball player, soda jerk, waiter, coxswain, and track star, performing each task with a steady determination but with consistently disastrous results. These scenes are especially amazing because in demonstrating Ronald's athletic inadequacies, Keaton reveals a surprising degree of physical prowess and finesse, particularly during the film's exhilarating climax.

3 Keaton Short Films: "In The Electric House" (1922, 23 mins.) Buster turns an ordinary dwelling into an automated funhouse, whose modern conveniences go hilariously haywire at the hands of a jealous rival. "The Blacksmith" (1922, 21 mins.) More mechanical mayhem is wrought. "Hard Luck" (1921, 22 mins.) Keaton named this as his favorite short work, "Hard Luck" follows a suicidal Buster as he makes a final effort at fitting in with society at a swank country club.

Silent Film Presented In Black & White, English Intertitles.
