DOUBLE FEATURED (2 MOVIES FOR ONLY ONE PRICE!) WITH BUSTER KEATON'S THE NAVIGATOR!  HAPPY NEW  YEAR!

Buster plays a movie projectionist who daydreams himself into the movies he is showing and merges with the figures and the backgrounds on the screen. While dreaming he is Conan Doyle's master detective, he snoops out brilliant discoveries.

"Keaton's appreciation of the formal paradoxes of the medium is astounding; his observations on the relationship between film and the subconscious are groundbreaking and profound. And it's a laugh riot, too." - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

"Keaton's third feature under his own steam is an incredible technical accomplishment, but also an almost Pirandellian exploration of the nature of cinematic reality." - Tom Milne, Time Out

"A master of movement and stillness, Keaton developed a comedy style that was as intellectual as it was physical, and this small gem shows us why he's as purely American a film genius as the motion pictures have produced." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"The unexpected, fantastic dream situations lend themselves to some remarkable trick effects, including one in which Buster walks right out of an audience and into a picture on the screen." - TIME Magazine

"Notable for a series of scintillating, near-inexplicable stunts, Keaton's characteristically dexterous and deadpan performance, as well as for its fat-free rattling-good storytelling and witty intertitles." - Emma Simmonds, Little White Lies

"There is an extremely good comedy which will give you plenty of amusement, so long as you permit Mr. Keaton to glide into his work with his usual deliberation." - Mordaunt Hall, New York Times

"Stone-faced director/producer Buster Keaton's marvelously inventive, short silent film era, comic fantasy - his third and shortest feature film. It was filled with the comedian's trademark physical gags..." - Tim Dirks, AMC Filmsite

Buster Keaton's masterpiece and one of the greatest silent-era comedies-a clockwork marvel of visual invention and meta-cinematic reflection." - James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk

"Fans of The General will disagree, but this absolutely dazzling comedy is perhaps the best of all Keaton features." - 

Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

Sherlock Jr. is a remarkable film, which captures the medium of cinema in unique and passionate ways, while maintaining a truth in its characters." - Amanda Mazzillo, Film Inquiry

"Keaton's signature statement, and mind-warping flight of fancy on the dreamlike nature of films and the fluid nature of our ontological existence." - Dan Jardine, Cinemania

"One of Buster Keaton's finest comedies, certainly his most inventive and technically audacious." - Adrian Turner, Radio Times

DOUBLE FEATURED (2 MOVIES FOR ONLY ONE PRICE!) WITH BUSTER KEATON'S SHERLOCK JR. !  HAPPY NEW  YEAR!

Unaware of this, Betsy boards the ship to look for her father. whom spies capture before cutting the ship loose. It drifts out to sea with the two socialites each unaware of there being anyone else on board!

"Keaton's master coup is in seizing Murnau's haunted ship as a gargantuan comic prop for a pair of stranded nitwits, who don't know what to do with it." - Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion

"One of Buster Keaton's best, which is to say comedy classic." - Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com

"One of the great slapstick comedies from silent comic Buster Keaton." - Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

"A text-book example on how to execute slapstick and sight gags. I would say that this film, even more so than THE GENERAL, is a perfect introduction to the films of Buster Keaton." - Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
