While not my favourite of Keaton's excursions, there's an undeniable charm to it. Never mind the reference to Sherlock, though; I think, after having seen this, that Buster Keaton should be more widely credited as the first Bond!

(YT) Keaton goes in and out of the frame, as normally as he makes a gag. There´s some lovably well constructed long gagas are the one with the money in the pile of garbage or Buster evading through a windoy with an old woman's cloth...

Silent Perfection

I’m not a silent film aficionado, I’m more of a tourist when it comes to this era of filmmaking. Sherlock Jr. is the only silent film I’ve ever awarded a perfect five-star rating and I doubt I will ever come across another silent movie as fun, thrilling, inventive or as mind-blowing as Sherlock Jr.; in my view Buster Keaton’s crowning achievement. Most of Keaton’s silent output is great ... read more

A projectionist and a sheik are rivals for a girl. The sheik steals her father's watch and Sherlock is blamed. Back at his projectionist's job he dreams himself and everyone else in his life into the movie which is playing. He is now Sherlock Holmes looking for some stolen pearls.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1920's) (27 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, so far, after watching around 5 of his movies, I can’t say I have become a huge fan of Buster Keaton's work. However, since this movie had a rather stellar reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Indeed, the damned thing was a total blast and easily one of the best silent comedies I have seen so far. Indeed, as usual with Keaton, the whole thing was quite random but, in the contrary to his other movies, it worked fine "

"While hanging from a water tower, Buster Keaton pulled a rope which released water from the tower, knocking him to the ground. In the scene, he stood and ran into the distance. During a routine physical examination 11 years later, an X-ray revealed that Keaton had fractured his neck"

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Quasi un secolo e non sentirlo: il film nel film (e che film, con Buster che entra nello schermo e, prima di sconvolgerne la trama, salta senza respiro tra le ambientazioni più disparate), parodia del poliziesco investigativo con la lente d'ingrandimento sempre in tasca, un'invenzione visiva dietro l'altra, lo slapstick ben temperato che non cede mai alla gag di grana grossa: una tra le vette di un autore immenso."
