1927-silent • Buster Keaton • With Live Accompaniment by Jelani Eddington on the Mighty Wurlitzer The inventive genius of Buster Keaton is in full swing in this beloved classic comedy-action-silent. Keaton was a mechanical whiz who designed breathtaking stunts and gags. A master of physical comedy, he did all of his own stunts. The climactic train chase in The General is not only the high point of the film, but it represents a milestone in film-making. Old Town Mursic Hall is the ideal place to see The General, with live musical accompaniment on the Might Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ.
