The Fine Arts/Concert Series of Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Plano, presents an authentic screening of Buster Keaton’s 1926 silent film, The General, on Sunday, 20 January, 2013 at 7pm. Keaton, a master of comedic timing and deadpan expressions, based this film on the actual historical event of the Great Locomotive Chase in Georgia in 1862 in which Union soldiers commandeered a Southern locomotive, “The General,” with the hopes of driving it north, disrupting rail supply lines along the way. Buster Keaton, one of the great stars of the silent era along with Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, retells the story from a Southern perspective with great attention paid to set design, scenery, staging, and comedic plot development. Orson Welles said of this moving picture that it was “. . . the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made.
