Three Ages

Descriptiojn: The first feature that Buster Keaton wrote, directed, and starred in, Three Ages spoofs D.W. Griffith’s historical epic Intolerance. Like that film, Three Ages follows multiple narratives across different historical eras, which Keaton packs to the brim with incredible stunts and hilarious visual gags.

Across three eras – the Stone Age, Ancient Rome, and “modern times” – Keaton competes for the love of a woman (Margaret Leahy) whilst having to defend himself from a nasty bully (Wallace Beery).

The Masters of Cinema is proud to present yet another Keaton masterpiece in its UK debut on Blu-ray, from a stunning restoration completed in 2022 by the Cohen Film Collection.

Yes, there are three volumes of Keaton features that Eureka has put out from the Cohen restorations, with tons of valuable extras, as opposed to the lousy bare-bones US Blu-ray issues. Probably this will be combined with the previously issued “The Saphead“ for another stripped down double feature in the US.

Kino has updated a few of their older issues of Keaton features from very good restorations from Lobster films, so, in some cases, many of us will end up with three different issues of some of these films. But I’m not complaining when something like this comes along.
