A kindly film projectionist longs to be a detective. When his fiancee is robbed by a local thief, the projectionist is framed for the crime. Using his amateur skills, his does his best to help solve the mystery. In 1991, Sherlock Jr. was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." In 2000, the American Film Institute, as part of its AFI 100 Years... series, ranked the film #62 in its list of the funniest films of all time.
