A worthy compilation
28 February 2001 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good documentary & compilation of the best chases of the silent movie era. It's good to get or rent if you can't get all the individual movies, esp The General by Buster Keaton. The narration is light and you get to see a lot of footage unlike many documentaries that are heavy on narration with just a small clip of the scene (or audio). The soundtrack is great, with the music by composer and harmonica virtuoso Larry Adler. There are many added sound effects (horse hoofbeats, train sounds, gunshots, etc) that weren't there in the original viewings of these movies of course but add to the footage (unless you're a purist).
