Reviews
Mine: Terrific comedy. One of the greatest silent comedies ever.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: One of Keaton's best silent features, setting comedy against true Civil War story of stolen train, Union spies. Not as fanciful as other Keaton films, but beautifully done; Disney did same story in 1956 as THE GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE.
