Summary
  • The General (1926; 75 min.): Rejected by the Confederate army as unfit and taken for a coward by his beloved Annabelle Lee, young Johnnie Gray sets out to single-handedly win the war with the help of his cherished locomotive. Johnnie wages war against hijackers, an errant cannon and the unpredictable hand of fate while roaring along the iron rails
  • The playhouse (1921; 25 min.): Keaton portrays every member of a stage company, the entire audience and an undisciplined chimp
  • Cops (1922; 17 min.): Buster tumbles into a series of mishaps while fleeing hundreds of uniformed police
