"This is very cheap and when you see it you'll know why.
The picture quality is o.k. but the main film Keaton's classic The General has been transfered at the wrong speed.
Everything seems to be happening in slow motion.
The other two films (The Blacksmith and The Paleface)seem to be at the right speed but The General is the main feature on this disc so I would advise looking for another copy of this classic film."
A General disappointment

"We have seen this movie as released by other distributors and found it to be one of the greatest comedies we'd ever seen. This version is completely ruined by its soundtrack. Whoever produced this version simply put generic classical music in the background (part of which even includes "pomp and circumstance." May be appropriate for my high school graduation, But not for one of the film greats.) I want my money back. And I want to find the version with the "original" single-piano musical score."
Loved the Movie - So sad they've changed the music

"We rented "The General" and LOVED IT! I bought this version and when I watched it I discovered they've changed the musical score. Can you imagine changing the musical score on a silent movie?!!! The music was changed to a classical instrumental score. My 10 year old son, for whom this movie was purchased, was very upset and we haven't watched the nasty thing since. Hello, in a silent movie the music is one of the characters and is just as important as anything you see on the screen!It was disappointing!"
