Testifies to the Keaton genius,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: College  [DVD] (DVD)
So 'College' is not the VERY best of the bunch. So what? Buster Keaton was and is the greatest and 'College' certainly testifies to his genius and was maybe the last feature that ever did. The venue, a college campus complete with jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, sympathetic headmasters (!) and bossy athletics coaches, is a source and vehicle of typical Keaton versatility, although you might feel that the most brilliant of jokes are a little far between.
Keaton creatures a psychologically well-rounded portrayal (and who would have thought?) of the bookish young man trying out for athletic fame to win the heart of a pretty girl. He is virtuosic in his physical comedy and really heartwrenching in his stonefaced martyrdom. Keaton is one screen persona though who, ultimately, will not let anybody override him, and he bounces back with a vengeance. The last half-hour of 'College' is vintage Keaton. You'll enjoy it, and you will savour the meticulous transfer on this DVD.
