Sherlock Jr. (US, 1924)

Keaton’s THE silent comedy genius for me and here his mix of slapstick, daredevil stunts and deadpan humour are at their peak. Apparently he fractured his neck doing the train stunt but it wasn’t noticed until 10 years later and the ride on the handlebars of a motorcycle is unbelieveable! (DVD, 3rd v). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0015324/
