The General

Some of Buster Keaton's movies are free on the internet so enjoy them while you can. This is one of his best and it's based on a true story.
The General received only mediocre reviews upon its release. It was not one of Keaton's biggest box office successes, which disappointed him as he considered it to be the best of all his movies. Audiences and critics would later agree with him after re-considering the film, and it is now considered a major classic of the silent era.
