Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
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.
