Description

Directors Clyde Bruckman, Buster Keaton Cast Buster Keaton, Marion Mack, Glen Cavender, Jim Farley

Consistently listed as one of the finest films of all time, The General was one of Keaton's favorites as well. In the film, Buster plays Johnnie Gray who falls into the Confederacy through love of his locomotive and his beautiful Annabelle Lee. Orson Welles said: "The greatest comedy ever, made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made."
