Laguna Art Museum is screening Buster Keaton’s One Week and Sherlock Jr on Film Night Thursday August 15 2019 at 6:00pm.
Laguna Art Museum Film Night is is free with paid museum admission.
Steven Forry, Ph.D., introduces two films by Buster Keaton, arguably the greatest actor and director of the 1920s.
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.
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.
