Silent Film Organist Clark Wilson Presents
The General

Acclaimed Silent Film Organist Accompanies Classic Comedy

The General (1927) is an imaginative masterpiece of dead-pan “Stone-Face” Buster Keaton comedy, generally regarded as one of the greatest of all silent comedies. The classic Civil War adventure-epic, made toward the end of the silent era, tells the story of southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray, whose beloved train engine, The General, is stolen by Yankee spies. The General will be accompanied live on the Hatfield Hall organ by Clark Wilson

  • Orson Welles called this film, “the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made”
