Welcome to Episode#92 #10 The General (Clyde Bruckman & Buster Keaton, 1926)
Summary: Johnnie Gray is an engineer on his train, The General, on the Western and Atlantic railroad. When war is declared between North and South he does his best to sign up with the Confederate army but is refused because he's in a designated occupation. His sweetheart Annabelle and her family don't believe him and she's ashamed, thinking he's shirking his duty. Meanwhile the Union army hatches a plan to steal the General and when it stops in Big Shanty they snatch it and head north. Annabelle Lee is a passenger on the train and Johnnie goes behind enemy lines to rescue his train and his girl.
Join Keefe, Paxton and Chris are back to the silent films. When you mix southern rebels and trains, you can only get gold. Unless it has Wil Smith, that was a mistake.
