Abstract:

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. The essays included here, written especially for this edition, examine this film in the context of Keaton's career, and offer new perspectives, among other things, on its unusual production history, Keaton's vaudeville background, and the differing views of "masculinity" that both celebrate and poke fun at cinema itself. Also included is a filmography of Keaton's works, contemporary reviews of Sherlock Jr., and a select bibliography.
