Buster Keaton co-directed and starred in this great classic from the (end of the) silent era inspired by a Civil War episode in which a group of Union spies rob a Confederate locomotive, which Keaton’s character must recover. Posters of the time described the film, now considered one of Keaton’s best, as “Love, Locomotives and Laughs.”
