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, founder of Slapsticon, Visual essay on the film's locations, ''The Scribe'', a 1966 industrial short that was Keaton's final filmed performance, Kino Lorber trailers and more!
Buster Keaton is one of the funniest men that has ever lived. His physical comedy has been imitated by everyone from Bugs Bunny to Jackie Chan. He was unforgettable!Published 5 months ago by alvaro salce

Buster Keaton was a classic performer of his era and I had to have him in my collection - now I do!Published on July 16, 2013 by MacGoo
Great movie. Plenty of laughs. Great extras that show the old Hollywood lots and where everything was shot on location.Published on June 23, 2013 by Michael G. Ryan
College may not be Keaton's best, but it's still Keaton AT his best, if that makes any sense. The story is very simple and is clearly just there to hang gags on. But what gags! Read morePublished on June 15, 2013 by Fred
The first part of the movie got a bit bogged down.
I think he spent too much time with the attempts at the different track and field events. Read more
Comparing this new Blu-ray release to the old Art Of Buster Keaton DVD shows much improvement.
1) A significant amount of picture has been added to all sides! Read more
I have puchased many of the Keaton Ultimate Edition blu-rays. The films are great, but the scores by Kino are usually dreadful and detract greatly from the experience of watching... Read morePublished on January 19, 2013 by Anthony Thompson
