SHERLOCK JR (1924) - Trailer


One of cinema's greatest clowns, Buster Keaton, plays a lovelorn movie-house projectionist who imagines himself on the screen as a debonair sleuth. Featuring some of film history's most iconic gags, from trick pool shots to runaway motorcycles, Sherlock, Jr. is a showcase for Keaton's comedic genius and his daring, awe-inspiring use of his body, props and the camera. Preserved by the Library of Congress and #62 in AFI's list of funniest movies of all time, Sherlock, Jr. continues to amaze and delight audiences worldwide. With live keyboard accompaniment from Bob Merrill.

D: Buster Keaton, US, 1924, 45m
