Sherlock, Jr.

Buster Keaton is in front of and behind the camera in this tricky silent film

Buster Keaton, one of silent film's most loved comic actors, was in the director's chair for Sherlock, Jr. Called his most avant-garde feature, Sherlock, Jr. follows the dreams and adventures of a film projectionist (Keaton). In a highlight of the film, movie tricks, such as superimpositions and clever editing, show a ghost leaving the sleeping projectionist's body and walking into the screen.
