Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr focuses on a classic by one of America's greatest silent film geniuses whose films still delight and amaze audiences worldwide. Written specially for this edition, the essays included in this volume examine this film within the context of Keaton's career, and also offer interesting perspectives on its unusual production history, Keaton's vaudeville background and the differing views of 'masculinity' which both celebrate and poke fun at cinema itself, among other topics. Also included is a complete filmography of Keaton's works and contemporary reviews of Sherlock Jr.
