Editor's Note
The two things engineer Johnny Gray (Buster Keaton) loves most in the world are his Southern belle sweetheart and his locomotive. When Northern spies steal the latter, the intrepid Confederate single-handedly takes on the entire Union army in order to get it back. Against a backdrop of magnificently photographed Civil War battle scenes unfolds one of the great chases in movie history. Set almost entirely aboard moving trains, Keaton's THE GENERAL is physical comedy refined to elegant perfection and widely considered to be the actor-director's greatest film.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times
"...THE GENERAL is an epic of silent comedy, one of the most expensive films of its time..." 08/31/1997 p.8

USA Today
"...THE GENERAL goes beyond comedic parameters to surpass GONE WITH THE WIND as the greatest Civil War movie..." 11/05/1999 p.6E

"...Keaton's brand of comedy -- the poker-faced everyman character, the elaborately constructed stunts that seem to work accidentally -- has influenced all generations of comic actors..." 12/01/2003 p.3

5 stars out of 5 -- "Every stunt takes place before the camera in real-time....THE GENERAL remains a breathless, beautiful delight." 03/01/2006 p.128

Entertainment Weekly
"[I]t's still a wonder to see the quicksilver Keaton executing mathematically precise, guffaw-inducing gags and pratfalls. A sublime comedy..." -- Grade: A 11/21/2008 p.102

A.V. Club
"Perhaps the first action comedy, Buster Keaton's defining 11926 classic THE GENERAL makes great use of Keaton's laws-of-physics defying body and face..." 12/09/2009
