UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world called Family Flicks Film Series. On Sunday, August 20, they are showing the classic The General. One of the greatest comedies ever made, The General tells the story of Johnnie (Buster Keaton), who loves two things: his train and the lovely Annabelle Lee. When the Civil War breaks out, Union spies steal his train with Annabelle on board, and Johnnie sets out in hot pursuit of his loves. This cinematic treat for all ages features some of Keaton’s most ingenious slapstick.
