Details

The original action star, Buster Keaton, at it again in what might be his all-time biggest spectacle. 1927’s “The General” still boasts practical stunts that will leave you floored and cringing as Keaton goes on a high-speed chase to save the Woman and Steam Engine he loves. Hop onboard The General with Dax & Adam, and see why almost every action star to follow, from Jackie Chan to Harrison Ford, would go on to draw inspiration from the seemingly immortal director and star.

Cineppraisal is an audio commentary podcast, designed to be played alongside the movies we talk about. During the beginning of the episode, we will mention sync points to help match up our audio with the film.
