Keaton's concern with the nature of the movie medium always far outdistanced Chaplin's or any other competitor's in the silent comedy field, and the dream sequence in which the mousy movie projectionist projects himself onto the movie screen is about as far in that direction as he ever went. The movie has some laughs, too -- in the pool game with an explosive 8-ball and in the obligatory chase. 1924.
