  • Keaton, Lloyd, Chaplin

    My title rates the three great silent comedians. Keaton and Lloyd made it to the talkies. Chaplin did not. Steamboat Willie is a great film on Father's day. The General is my favorite silent film, it made my grand kids laugh.

  • Great Movie - Awful Music

    • John
    • 5/2/13

    A classic film for all time.However, the music score of the version being played on TCM is awful. Credited as "Music by The Alloy Orchestra" with a 2003 copyright, it is irritating beyond reason.

  • AND THE WALLS COME TUMBLING DOWN!

    • 6/8/10

    The greatest pre-computer era special effects ever: Buster Keaton wasted no expense & calculations planning the stunt of the wall falling around him. In fact, lots of stuff fell down during this movie. You have to see this movie if only for the classic Hat Scene. Ultimately this sweet and exciting story is not about whether Buster gets the girl, but whether he can ever win his father's approval.If I was king of the world, I would require everyone to own & watch this movie.

  • Love the Movie, HATE THE SOUNDTRACK

    • 4/19/10

    I don't know who did the soundtrack for this ingenious Buster Keaton romp, but that person shouldn't be able to ruin any more films. I am currently watching the movie, and that soundtrack is absolutely irritating. I may have to find another soundtrack which would complement the action, and then play it instead. After watching "The Passion of Joan of Arc" recently, and being impressed with how well the modern soundtrack enhanced that film, I know there must be something out there which will work. If I find it, I will post the information. The music is SO important to the whole experience of a silent movie, it has to be right.

  • HILARIOUS!!!!

    Buster Keaton is always so funny! It is a shame this type of comedy went out of Hollywood Style. What I wouldn't give to go to the theatre and laugh, really laugh. Today you go to the theatre and mostly the laughs are geared toward childish giggles at the blatent use of the "F" word.

  • Have to see this

    Without special effects, or even sound, this movie is everything a movie can be, genius.
