Join us for the first of our summer Saturday Screenings in the context of Charlie Hammond’s exhibition FARM WEEDS. Sherlock Jr is one of Buster Keaton’s funniest and most technically innovative features. He plays the floor sweeper and projectionist of a small-town movie theatre who in his free time studies to be a detective.
In 1991, Sherlock Jr was selected for preservation in the US National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, as being ‘culturally, historically or aesthetically significant’. In 2000, the American Film Institute ranked the film #62 in its list of the funniest films of all time.
