Sherlock Jr (1924)
We are lost! He is sending for the world's greatest detective - Sherlock Jr.!
So basically: A projectionist wishes he could be a detective. When he is accused of theft and dismissed by the woman he loves, he daydreams a parallel universe where he is a world class detective on a similar case.
This is a charming film. Buster Keaton is hilarious! He doesn't surpass Charlie Chaplin, but he does come close! I'm kind of upset that this film continues to get booted off the list! The effects are stunning, too. It was fabulous to watch Keaton through his dream world.
This should defs be higher on the list!
Ziggi seal of approval!
