The Greatest Comedy Ever Made
THE GENERAL represents the greatest achievement screen comedy ever accomplished. From the brilliant gag construction to the sheer excellence of the filmmaking technique, THE GENERAL is a hilarious and amazing journey into comedy. Written and directed by Buster Keaton and Clyde Bruckman, Keaton brings brilliant gags into the story. The film begins when Keaton is told he is of no use to the South as a soldier, but as a train engineer. However, his girlfriend refuses to talk to him until he is in uniform. After the war has started, the girl is kidnapped by some Union raiders on Keaton’s train, and so begins the greatest (and funniest) chase ever filmed. For the next 75 minutes, the viewer is in Keaton’s world. His gags, routines and amazing slapstick serve to make this the greatest screen comedy ever filmed.
