18. The General
They steal the man's train and so he goes to get it back.
What I thought
I really liked the piano music, and I want to drive a choo choo!
What Mum thought
First time for Mum. "I'm a fan of Keaton, particularly the shorts. Some of the stunts were funny enough, if a little repetitive at times. Overall, the civil war serves only as a backdrop for a pretty dull story."
What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "This film had some great sets and excellent stunts. Unfortunately I faded in and out. I'm an 80s child and a silent film just couldn't keep my attention. I've heard that Keaton has better films. It was interesting to watch but should it have been included on the top 100 list? I think not."
