Print condition: VG | Plain box
The General (1927) is an American comedy directed by and starring Buster Keaton. This is the Paul Killiam abridgement from the US television series Silents Please (1960-1962). Silent with English intertitles.
The print is pretty splicy, especially in the first reel, but the strange thing is that most splices fall neatly between scenes, and the print has almost no other wear. So we think its former owner has rearranged the order of scenes to better match these with the full version of the film. Nevertheless, we have priced the film lower than usual.
Total film length is approx. 160m/550ft.
Released by Blackhawk Films, US.
