Sherlock, Jr. (1924)



Reviews and Comments

Films from the twenties were not noted for their seamless special effects, but you try to deconstruct the ingredients of the elaborate scene where movie projectionist Buster Keaton, in a dream sequence, jumps in and out of the picture. Relentlessly inventive, Sherlock, Jr. is a real gem of a comedy from the silent era.
