VERDICT – 5/5
1) A projectionist & wannabe Sherlock Holmes‘ daydreaming adventure.
2) One of Buster Keaton’s classic with its trademark stunts, optical effects, and in-camera tricks. The scene where Buster is stuck in the movie frame with frequently changing locations is one great cinematic achievement for a 1924 silent film.
3) The hilarious pool game scene.
4) The remarkable daredevil stunts on top of the moving train where Buster grabs a water spout; there is another scene of him landing on a moving car hanging on a roadblock gate.
Projectionist: Be careful or one of us will get hurt.
