Welcome to the frenzied world of Keystone. A place where men were wolves, women were flirts and wives were shrews. Keystone films were well made with good, often surreal special effects. While preparing the films for this disc we noticed a number of subtleties, some of them humorous and some explanatory, which had escaped our notice during the first couple of viewings. The films move quickly and require close attention, not only to follow the action but also to catch some of the gags as they race by. So sit back, relax and fasten your seat belts. We are pleased to present Keystone tonight.
