The General - Clemens Center

April 9, 2017  4:00 p.m.

a 1926 American Silent Comedy Film directed by Buster Keaton and Clyde Bruckman is coming to the Clemens Center on Sunday, April 9, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. and will feature accompaniment by David Peckham on the Marr and Colton Theatre Organ.

“Consistently ranked among the greatest films ever made, Buster Keaton’s THE GENERAL is so brilliantly conceived and executed that it continues to inspire awe and laughter with every viewing.”

Rejected by the Confederate army as unfit and taken for a coward by his beloved Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), young Johnny Gray (Keaton) is given a chance to redeem himself when Yankee spies steal his cherished locomotive. Johnny sets out to single-handedly win the war with the help of his locomotive. What follows is without exaggeration, probably the most cleverly choreographed comedy recorded on celluloid. Joined by theatre organ accompaniment with Resident Theatre Organist, David Peckham, this is an afternoon of fun not to be missed!
