Trwa wojna secesyjna. Johnnie Gray jest mieszkańcem Południa i maszynistą kolejowym. Prowadzi lokomotywę "Generał". Chce wziąć udział w wojnie, ale nie zostaje przyjęty do wojska, gdyż jego zawód jest przydatny dla zaplecza armii. Jego narzeczona Annabelle traktuje go jak tchórza, ponieważ Johnnie nie walczy na froncie. Pewnego dnia lokomotywę, w której znajduje się Annabelle, porywają dywersanci z Północy. Bohater rzuca się w pogoń za skradzionym "Generałem", a przede wszystkim - za porwaną ukochaną.

Buster Keaton's career reached its creative apex with this rousing comic adventure. Not merely one of the finest silent films, this remains one of the great film comedies of all time. The Great Stone Face stars as Southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray, a man with only two loves: the sweet Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack) and his trustworthy engine, the eponymous General. When Fort Sumner is fired upon he is one of the first to enlist, but when the war office rejects him (he's too valuable as a trained engineer) his sweetie rejects him as a coward. Johnny has the opportunity to prove his bravery when Yankee spies steal his engine and inadvertently kidnap Annabelle, and Johnny pursues with all the resources at his disposal: handcar, bicycle and finally railroad engine. Keaton's love/hate relationship with technology and machinery shines as he becomes one with his beloved locomotive and wrestles with a finicky cannon that threatens to blow his engine off the tracks, with tremendous dexterity, he nails the humour with inimitably deadpan takes. Spunky Marion Mack makes a perfect partner for Keaton, not merely a foil but a gifted comedienne in her own right. Other Keaton films contain more laughs and inspired comic stunts, but none combines romance, adventure and comedy into a solid story as seamlessly as this silent masterpiece. -- Sean Axmaker
