Comic genius Buster Keaton achieved an artistic milestone with the 1927 silent adventure, The General. Based on a true story, this Civil War tale not only starred Keaton, but was written and co-directed by him as well. Keaton, as confederate railroad engineer John Gray, attempts to thwart the theft of his beloved locomotive, "The General," by Union spies. He springs into action when he realizes the "other" love of his life, girlfriend Annabelle Lee, is taken captive. His adventure turns from drama to hilarity in a memorable and poignant fashion. Buster Keaton displays the deadpan countenance and brilliant comic timing that made him one of America's most beloved comedians and an icon of his era. One of Keaton's favorite films, The General is known for itsmasterfully composed action sequences and brilliant recreation of the Antebellum South. It is recognized by critics and movie aficionados as one of the greatest silent comedies of all time.
