Locations in Buster Keaton’s The General, Then & Now

As part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Summer of Silents event series, John Bengston delivered a talk on the locations used for The General. If it’s Buster Keaton, I’m there and this is a nifty little six minutes. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… well, you’ll laugh at least. Check out the video at The Academy’s website. While you’re there, be sure to check out some of the other videos from the series.
