Consistently ranked among the greatest films ever made, Buster Keaton's "The General" is so brilliantly conceived and executed that it continues to inspire awe and laughter with every viewing. Union solders have stolen The General, a Confederate train manned by Johnnie Gray, who was unable to enlist in the Confederate army because he is needed as an engineer.The Union plans to use the train to supply its soldiers in a sneak attack against the Confederates. But now it's up to Gray and his love, Annabelle Lee, to reclaim The General, recross enemy lines, and warn the Confederates.
