The General
Often listed among the ten best films of all time, The General (1926) is Keaton's greatest work, at once a full scale epic and a wonderful comedy. It is memorable for Keaton's playful comic inventiveness and the strong story-line of a single, brave, but foolish Southern Confederate train engineer doggedly in pursuit of his passionately-loved locomotive ("The General") AND the woman he loves.
The climax of the film includes a spectacular moment in which a bridge collapses as a railroad train crosses it. Keaton filmed the collapse using 500 extras from the Oregon National Guard who dressed up in Union uniforms and were filmed going left-to-right before changing into Confederate uniforms to be filmed going right-to-left. A financial and critical failure in its time, The General is now considered one of the masterpieces of cinema history. 107 min.
