“THE GENERAL”
 

Train engineer Johnnie (Buster Keaton) is in GA to see his fiancée, Annabelle, when the Civil War breaks out. Johnnie hurries to sign up with the Confederate Army, but is rejected because he is too valuable driving his locomotive, The General. Believing Johnnie does not want to enlist, Annabelle coldly informs him that she will not speak to him again until he is in uniform. But when Annabelle is taken captive by Union forces, Johnnie races to the rescue. Will he save the day? Ranked #18 on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 best American movies of all time. 1926. Black and white. Silent with added musical score. Approximately 75 minutes. Not rated.
