Widely regarded as one of the most visually inventive silent comedies ever made, Sherlock Jr. offers fast-paced slapstick as well as a brilliant deconstruction of the filmmaking process. Buster Keaton stars as a movie theatre projectionist who dreams of becoming a super-sleuth and, in one breathtaking sequence, literally steps into the screen to bring his fantasies to life. Seven Chances is a film often imitated but never rivaled for hilarity and visual virtuosity. Keaton stars as Jimmie Shannon, a romantically jinxed young man who must marry by 7:00pm to inherit seven million dollars. While fate seems to thwart his efforts to woo the object of his true affection (Ruth Dwyer), public announcement of his strange predicament provides him with a throng of would-be brides who are aggressive in their pursuit of a husband, to say the least. In one of the most rousing, brilliantly choreographed sequences in Keaton's career, Shannon flees the avalanche of women while dodging the hostile of nature that seem to be conspiring against him (in the form of a colossal rockslide) during his manic dash to the altar.
