Toronto Silent Film Festival 2013: ‘The General’ Showcases Buster Keaton’s Inimitable Feats of Glaring-Do

10 April 2013 9:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Railrodder

Directed & Written by Gerald Potterton

Canada, 1965

The General

Directed by Clyde Bruckman & Buster Keaton

Written by Clyde Bruckman & Buster Keaton

USA, 1926

Tsff festivities came to a comedic crescendo at the Revue Cinema on Tuesday night with a pair of locomotive laugh-getters starring “The Great Stone Face”, Buster Keaton. First on the program was a throwback silent short made by the National Film Board of Canada in 1965, just a year before the comedian’s death. The film was introduced by International Buster Keaton Society “Porkpie” Scholarship recipient R. Edwin Barnett, whose current research project aims to reintegrate The Railrodder into the main body of Keaton criticism (most books/essays on the actor/auteur simply name-check the movie as one of his “industrial” films during the rush to ring down the curtain on Keaton’s career). After seeing the film, Barnett’s point seems manifest. The Railrodder may not be a great film, »
