SEVEN CHANCES and SHERLOCK JR.
Saturday, June 13, 2009
@ 7:00 p.m. ONLY Detroit Film Theatre
In his brilliant 1925 silent comedy Seven Chances, bachelor Buster Keaton learns that he’s in line to inherit seven million dollars, but only on one small condition: that he must get married by seven o’ clock today! How he sets out to find a bride makes Seven Chances one of Keaton’s most hilarious films, and one of the most incredibly inventive achievements of the silent era. For brilliant and innovative sight gags, perhaps the only film that equals Seven Chances is Keaton’s incredible 1924 Sherlock Jr., the surreal story of a movie theatre projectionist turned amateur sleuth, who finds himself magically becoming a part of the films he projects. For sheer laughs-per-minute, this double feature is impossible to top. (101 min. total)
