'I am in awe of Buster Keaton and his incredible, masterful performance in The General. What a face...what a remarkable, interesting, alluring face; what an actor that moves so swiftly on his locomotive in such an effortless fashion. The film has other fantastic elements too, such as its locomotive effects and perfectly timed comedy, but when I think back on the film, I just simply cannot erase that face.' – To read the full ★★★★1/2 review by Neely on Letterboxd click on the poster above
