Retro: The Unquiet American

SHERLOCK JR.

Buster Keaton, Roscoe Arbuckle
USA 1924
52min
V'09

In Buster Keaton’s masterpiece, which he directed solo, he plays a lovesick movie projectionist who climbs into the movie screen to solve a crime, walking through several different kinds of movies and landscapes in the process. Not simply a charming dreamlike fantasy, this is also a lovely piece of Americana circa 1924.

This film is screened together with <filmlink id=\"3126\">Who Killed Who?</filmlink> and <filmlink id=\"3148\">Wide Angle Saxon</filmlink>.
