The General

Sunday 17th December 3:00 PM


Johnnie loves his train (The General) and Annabelle. When civil war breaks out, he is turned down for service because he's more valuable as an engineer. Annabelle thinks he's a coward.

Union spies capture The General with Annabelle on board. Johnnie to the rescue.

The superb cinematography stunningly depicts Buster Keaton indulging in increasingly impressive train-based acrobatics. This is Keaton at his best, with this film being hailed as the greatest screen comedy ever made.
