Summary In 1934, Keaton signed a contract with Earle W. Hammons' Educational Pictures, which specialized in comedy short subjects. This move was a return to his roots, crafting a stream of two-reel comedies in rapid succession, as he had done in the early 1920s, when he first refined his cinematic craft. Contains all sixteen films made at Educational Pictures.
