Paramount 100: The General
Not rated, 74 min. Directed by Buster Keaton. Starring Buster Keaton and Marion Mack.
The General is one of Keaton's best films. In this Civil War comedy, Keaton does battle with the General – only thing is the General is a stolen train, not a soldier. There's a girl and some Union spies but, mostly it's Keaton, the Great Stone Face, all the way. (Double bill: "Sherlock, Jr.") Read a full review of The General.No current showings of this film.
