Masters of Cinema boxes BUSTER KEATON: 3 FILMS VOLUME 2 (review)

Masters of Cinema brings us a selection of three more 4K-restored Buster Keaton silent classics.  In THE NAVIGATOR, a couple are stranded on a ship set adrift by spies.  In SEVEN CHANCES, a groom is on the run when thousands of brides discover he will inherit millions of dollars if he marries on his twenty-seventh birthday.  In BATTLING BUTLER, a wealthy young man impersonates a prizefighter to impress his bride-to-be's family and ends up in the ring fighting "The Alabama Murderer."
