Buster Keaton stars as a movie projectionist who dreams himself into the film he's showing in one of the funniest, most imaginative, and surreal comedies of the silent era.

Buster Keaton’s sublime comedy about reality and illusion, in which projectionist Buster literally dreams himself into the detective movie he’s screening is considered one of his finest works. Buster stars as a movie projectionist/janitor who dreams of being a detective, and impressing the girl he loves. When Buster dreams himself into the film he's showing, he is propelled into a visual wonderland where real life and fantasy come crashing together. Sherlock Jr. was Keaton’s 3rd feature-length film as an independent after switching to the longer format following a series of brilliant 2-reelers in the early 1920s. The film was innovative in its technical mastery, its surreal explosion of cinematic space, and its wonderfully pure zaniness. (USA, 1924, 49 min., NR, Silent with English intertitles | Dir. Buster Keaton)

In The Goat, Buster goes from Forgotten Man to Most Wanted when his photograph is mistakenly circulated as that of an escaped criminal in one of his funniest and wildest short films. (USA, 1921, 21 min. Silent | Dir. Buster Keaton)
