Film Night: Buster Keaton's One Week and Sherlock ...

Presented by Compass at Laguna Art Museum

One Week, the 1920 two-reel silent comedy film, was the first film to be released made by Keaton on his own. The story involves two newlyweds who receive a build-it-yourself house that can be built, supposedly, in one week. Their construction project becomes both impossible and absurd when a rejected suitor re-numbers the packing crates.

In Sherlock Jr., Keaton plays a film projectionist who longs to be a detective and puts his skills to work when he is framed as a thief by a rival. The 1924 silent comedy film was Keaton’s most complicated for special optical effects and in-camera tricks.
