Film Series: The General

1926. USA. Dir: Clyde Bruckman. With Buster Keaton, Marion Mack. 107 min.

What’s a Georgia boy to do when some dastardly yankees make off with his best girl and – worse yet – his best locomotive? Buster Keaton gives chase, of course, and in the process creates his most-acclaimed masterpiece of inventive laughs, thrills, and death-defying stunts he performed himself. Live Accompaniment provided by Ben Model (MoMA).
