Two more classic Buster Keaton movies are on their way.
Cohen Media Group will release The Buster Keaton Collection: Volume 2 July 9. the two-movie collection will be available on DVD and Blu-ray.
CMG’s forthcoming collection will feature Keaton’s classic movies The Navigator and Sherlock Jr. Both movies were released in 1924.
Sherlock Jr. finds Keaton playing the part of a movie projectionist who ends up daydreaming about the movies that he plays for audiences. His daydreams, at one point, turn to a Sherlock Holmes story, leading him to believe he is Holmes. It is possible this story could have been the influence for Danny Kaye’s 1947 movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and maybe even playright Arthur Miller’s famed story “Death of a Salesman” and its cinematic adaptations.
In The Navigator, Keaton and his lady love are stuck on a deserted ocean liner. The liner ends up on a deserted island that is full of cannibals.
Along with the movies, audiences also get a pair of featurettes as bonuses. “Buster Keaton: The Great Stone Face” runs 4 minutes, 25 seconds. “Buster Keaton: The Comedian” runs 3 minutes, 51 seconds. The bonuses focus on Keaton’s comedic approach in two separate ways.
The collection will retail for MSRP of $25.99 on DVD and $30.99 on Blu-ray.
