A joint endeavor between the Cohen Film Collection and the Cineteca di Bologna, The Keaton Project aims to restore the films the great screen comedian Buster Keaton made between 1920 and 1928. We’re excited to share one of the fruits of that labor, Battling Butler, in which Keaton plays a rich dandy who must pretend to be a fearsome boxer in order to win the love of a country girl. Keaton’s favorite of all his films! (78 mins., 4K DCP)
Also be sure catch Peter Bogdanovich’s new career-spanning documentary The Great Buster, screening January 24–25.
