GENERAL, THE (1926)

Silent with live musical accompaniment by the Columbia Orchestra; original score composed by Andrew Simpson

Restored 4K DCP
When the Civil War breaks out, railroad engineer Buster Keaton tries to join the Confederate army to make his fiancée proud. Deeming his profession a valuable Southern asset, the army rejects him — and so does she. But after Union spies steal his beloved locomotive (and his girl along with it), Keaton springs into daring action. Keaton's deadpan drollery, pitch-perfect comedic timing and his incredible physical talent and bravery make this one of the greatest silent-era comedies. DIR/SCR Clyde Bruckman; DIR/SCR/PROD Buster Keaton; PROD Joseph M. Schenck. U.S., 1927, b&w, 75 min. NOT RATED
