  1. Buster Keaton was a lot like Charlie Chaplin. In other words, he was one of the kings of cinematic comedy during the Silent era. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  2. Wow! We are paractically on the same page in ranking. I might, depending on the day, put Sherlock Jr. ahead of The General. Other days it would be just as you have it.

  3. Sherlock Jr. is most certainly the most imaginative of all of Keaton’s films when you take into account (as others have said or implied) that it comes off as one of (If not) the earliest examples of surrealism within cinema. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
