DOUBLE FEATURE:

The General    NR, 1926  67 min.

One of the most revered comedies of the silent era, this film finds a hapless Southern railroad engineer (Buster Keaton) facing off against Union soldiers during the American Civil War. When Johnny's fiancée is accidentally taken away while on a train stolen by Northern forces, Gray pursues the soldiers, using various modes of transportation in comic action scenes that highlight Keaton's boundless wit and dexterity.

The Narrow Margin    NR 1952  71 min.

Classic film noir story of a tough cop attempting to transport the widow of a gangster to the trial in which she'll testify. They undertake a rail journey from Chicago to Los Angeles with their lives constantly under threat from hit men on the train, who will stop at nothing to prevent her from testifying.
