The General is more than just a locomotive, it’s one of Stone Face’s (Keaton) two sweethearts – the other being his girl, Anabelle.
When both of them are stolen during the American Civil War, Stone Face embarks on a lone-wolf rescue mission that takes him behind enemy lines.
Brilliantly filmed and fueled with classic physical comedy, The General captures Buster Keaton at his timeless best.
