Counting down my 50 greatest movie scenes.
Even if you struggle with silent movies, you can’t deny the impressive set pieces some of the greats put together. One of those greats was Buster Keaton, who famously put his body on the line over and over for the sake of his movies. One of his most memorable gags comes in the motorcycle scene of Sherlock Jr, in which Keaton rides on the bars of a getaway bike not knowing the driver has already fallen off. Not only is there plenty of laughs, but I love the intricacies of each joke and set piece that falls together like cogs in this great movie machine.
