The General and Three Ages
Buster Keaton’s THE GENERAL is not simply one of the greatest silent comedies ever made, it is one of the greatest films—of any era. In restaging the true story of one man’s journey behind enemy lines to reclaim his captured locomotive during the Civil War, Keaton stages a series of complex chases, using lumbering trains as comedic props. Keaton’s inventive mind is matched only by his physical athleticism, making THE GENERAL a truly breath-taking experience. Keaton’s first foray into making feature films, THREE AGES is a parody of D.W. Griffith’s Intolerance, dramatizing man’s quest for love in three parallel settings—a modern city, the Stone Age, and ancient Rome—and loading each plotline with amazing stunts and hysterical sight gags.
"This is a must-own disc for movie fans."
"...two of the most visually inventive (and funniest) silent comedies ever made."
"Featuring new 2K restorations supplied by French distributor Lobster Films, this double feature of Buster Keaton's The General and Three Ages plays very well on Blu-ray."
