Watch The General

"Buster drives "The General" to trainload of laughter."

The General is a 1926 comedy starring Buster Keaton. The movie was made as the silent film era was coming to an end. It was a huge budget film that fared poorly at the box office. The lack of the film’s success compromised Keaton’s career as an independent filmmaker. Although the film was not received well by film critics and the public when it was originally released it is now considered a movie classic. The American Film Institute ranked it at Number 18 on the list of the 100 Best American Movies.

Keaton plays a train engineer named Johnnie Gray .He is visiting his fiancé Annabelle Lee in Georgia when the Civil War begins. He attempts to join the Confederate Army but is rejected. Annabelle wants nothing to do with him until he is in uniform.
