The General

April 3, 2008

Buster Keaton’s best – an American Civil War tale of a doughty railroad engineer’s exploits to rescue the girl and the steam engine he loves from the Yankees. A masterpiece. ¬•Forget that this is a silent movie. This 1927 classic has more expression, movement and sheer beauty (along with its comedy) than 99 per cent of films made today.’ Anthony Clarke,
