The General - Buster Keaton

In collaboration with the 28th Leeds International Film Festival, Lee Broughton introduced a screening of Buster Keaton’s The General (USA, 1926). Lee’s introduction explored how the various interpretive traditions that Americans have employed to make sense of the US Civil War can also be used to further our understanding of key Civil War-related scenarios that appear in The General. The screening took place at the City Varieties in Leeds on 8 November 2014.
