The General

N.p. N.p., Circa 1926. Vintage reference photograph from the 1926 film, showing actor Buster Keaton in an elevator, wearing a jaunty hat.

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.
