Description

SHERLOCK JR. USA 1924, 49 mins (U)
Directed by Buster Keaton

NB film starts promptly at 8.30pm

A film projectionist dreams of becoming a private detective. His wish comes true when he is framed for a theft. Suddenly, he must apply his scant sleuthing skills to save himself. Meanwhile his girlfriend takes a more practical approach. They don’t make 'em like they used to, or do they? This silent classic gives us very early examples of dream sequences, surrealism and movie-within-a-movie devices, used repeatedly in countless films in the 9 decades since Sherlock Jr was released. But the main reasons for watching Buster Keaton’s masterpiece is it’s terrific, brilliantly funny while showcasing Keaton’s supreme physical comedy skills. Not sure about a silent film? Bet you’ll be surprised at how much you enjoy it.
‘Fascinating and enthralling short feature. Buster Keaton created something altogether special here.’ David Parkinson, Empire
