After a hiatus in March for the Queen City Shout, B-Movies in the Barrel House returns on the last Sunday in April.
This installment is a double feature of the silent era legend, Buster Keaton. Keaton’s elaborately choreographed slapstick belies the genius of his craft. Keaton is today recognized not only for his daring stunt work (without Keaton there would be no Jackie Chan!) and impeccable comedic timing, but for his innovation in direction and editing as well.
Two short films, 1921’s The Goat and 1924’s Sherlock Jr., will give us a chance to revel in the madcap mastery of one of the most influential American filmmakers.
