The General - Movie

1926. Buster Keaton. Top 100 all-time great films. Based on the book 'The Great Locomotive Chase' by William Pettinger. A silent movie, 'The General' cost Buster Keaton losses and his status and it was only much later viewed as a classic. The film with its locomotive chases and stunts is breathtaking, and captures the essence of the real story, while treating it with a brush of humour. 'The General' is the name of the train that is stolen. Buster Keaton is fantastic.
