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!

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

Sherlock Jr.

Keaton’s learning curve was immensely quick. Only a year after Our Hospitality showed his artistic triumphs in the infant stages, Sherlock Jr. comes out and demonstrates that he is now at the top of his craft. At roughly forty-five minutes in length, which is both too brief and just right, Sherlock Jr. may just, objectively speaking, be the greatest film in all of his filmography.

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.

“A century old this year and it HOLDS UP! This is easily one of my favorite silent movies and had me laughing throughout. Also had many moments when I thought, "how did they do THAT?!"

Outstanding physical comedy as always from the legendary Buster Keaton” read more

A classic

“Even though I grew up watching the movies of Charles Chaplin, I have to admit I had been rather oblivious regarding Buster Keaton for a very long time and I discovered his work much later as an adult. Well, 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. Eventually, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Indeed, the damned thing was just 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 actually did work fine here. Basically, most of the duration was just a dream but it didn't stop here a” read more

"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"
