Keatons physical talent for silent movie acting is truly unfolded to its greatest. In the amazing scenery of "The General" Great Stone Face show that he is the often underestimated king of silent comedy.
I've watch it uncountable times, and still can't stop laughing.
My favorite silent era comedy and one of the best comedies to this day.

The story is sweet and exciting - the stunts are amazing breathtaking and little jokes to break the tension throughout. It's a well constructed movie and worth watching.

This movie is wonderful! Shot beautifully, edited superbly, acted brilliantly, great score. Really funny and a great war film. In short a masterpiece. I really do hate the fact that modern movies get way too much credit when a lot of their older counterparts are generally better overall and deserve much more credit just because they age so much better. I haven't laughed and been awed (at the same time) by a movie in a long time, and it's silent!
