A fast and funny silent comedy so canonical, Pauline Kael deemed it "a piece of native American surrealism." The master comedian plays a poorly projectionist who dreams of becoming a great detective and wooing a neighborhood girl. Chock full of vaudeville flair, elaborate slapstick gags, and a clever film-within-a-film dream sequence, this pristinely edited tale more than stands the test of time.
