From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.
During the Civil War, an engineer must work to save the two loves of his life: a woman named Annabelle Lee, and a train named The General. A box office disappointment upon release, but long since reconsidered, and now ranked among the the finest of Keaton's films.
Shot on location in California and Oregon.
