Kino has scheduled March for the Blu-Ray debuts of Buster Keaton's hilarious College (1927) and 1953's charming Little Fugitive. A standard Ultimate Edition DVD of College will also be released.

Bonus features for the Keaton feature are below, but have yet to be determined for Fugitive.


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.

BONUS FEATURES:
  • Audio commentary by film historian Rob Farr (Slapsticon Founder)
  • Visual essay on the film's locations
  • "The Scribe," a 1966 industrial short that was Keaton's final filmed performance
