Regarded by many as Keaton’s peak achievement, and reportedly his own personal favorite, The General—based on a real-life Civil War incident—is equal parts thrill ride and comedy. When his pride-and-joy locomotive The General is hijacked with on-again/off-again girlfriend Marion Mack trapped on board, Keaton—aptly casting himself as an engineer—gives chase in another train, The Texas, amidst spectacular (Oregon) scenery and (one-take-or-bust) action.

A film by Buster Keaton & Clyde Bruckman
