Sherlock Jr. (1924)

It was very difficult to get a clear screencap of Sherlock Jr., which makes sense as it's a movie so full of motion. It doesn't rely on like...perfectly composed shots (though there are quite a few!) for its charm, it all comes from Buster Keaton being REALLY AWESOME. It's so funny and clever and charming and is a movie that is so much about the love of movies, with him dreaming and actually jumping into the movie screen and kind of living out his dream of being a great detective. And then taking cues from the moviescreen once he wakes up and is with his girl! It's delightful.
