The General dir. Buster Keaton
This comic chase movie has aged well and its visual gags are the main course. If you watch it, remind yourself that Keaton didn't use a stunt double. While I wondered why the hero was on the Confederate side, I enjoyed everything else about the movie. When I reached the end, I realized how that the movie is paced so well -- with no boring moments -- that it seems much shorter than it is.
