Buster Keaton's co-director.
The General (1927) -- Directed with Buster Keaton. My favorite silent movie (of the few I've seen), this one still holds up in the world of Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. A truly funny movie with some of the greatest stunts (not to mention train crashes) ever shot. Buster Keaton mixes slapstick with good acting and emotion that actually gets you involved in the story for more than just the jokes. The closest thing I've ever seen to a live-action Mickey Mouse "gag" picture. B
