The General

Director: Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman Run Time: 79 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1926

Starring: Buster Keaton, Frederick Vroom, Glen Cavender, Jim Farley, Marion Mack

Buster Keaton rides along on a runaway train, plenty of slapstick and chaos follow. Honestly, I think his shtick holds up way better than Chaplin, and we can argue about that while the movie plays (don’t worry, it’s silent). He crashed a real goddamn train off a bridge and what did Chaplin do, eat a boot?
