Buster Keaton - The General
Directed by - Clyde Bruckman & Buster Keaton

(1927) - B&W - 105 min
We were not thrilled with the soundtrack on this silent film - and instead would recommend using music from The Band, The Allman Brothers, Lynard Skynard, or some train related compilation of great songs.

Part one
Buster Keaton is Johnnie Gray, a train engineer and he loves his machine - a puffing and wheezing locomotive that goes by the name of The General. Johnnie Gray is sympathetic to the confederates (The South), and when he gets his train stolen by some Union soldiers, he vows to get it back - whatever it takes.

Part two
Johnnie Gray goes chasing after the Union soldiers who swiped his beloved General - and also, Annabelle Lee, a soft Southern Belle that Johnnie is fond of. Some great scenes as the Union boys try to derail Johnnie and make a clean getaway.

Part three
The Southern Army is forced into a desparate retreat. Meanwhile, Johnnie is heading the other way - and straight into the Union stronghold. Keaton goes behind enemy lines and learns some vital information while hiding under the table. hilarious stuff.
