THE GENERAL:

Cohen Film Collection introduces this Buster Keaton classic. Set during the Civil War and based on a true incident, the film is also an authentic-looking period piece that brings the scope and realism of Matthew Brady-like images to brilliant life. Keaton portrays engineer Johnnie Gray, rejected by the Confederate Army and thought a coward by his girlfriend (Marion Mack). When a band of Union soldiers penetrate Confederate lines to steal his locomotive, Johnnie Gray sets off in pursuit. Seven of the film’s eight reels are devoted to the chase, featuring hilarious comedy and amazing stunts performed by Keaton himself.

STEAMBOAT BILL JR:

The son of a steamboat captain, Buster falls in love with the daughter of a rival steamboat owner. When a cyclone rages, Buster proves himself a hero by rescuing his love and her father from a watery grave.

“The pioneering genius of Buster Keaton's 1926 silent film The General looks even more startling than ever…more or less invented the action movie.”-- The Guardian

“Buster Keaton is one of the very greatest filmmakers ever to get behind a camera.”-- British Film Institute
