Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 1:00pm to 2:22pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

1926 > USA > Directed by Buster Keaton/Clyde Bruckman
With Buster Keaton, Marian Mack, Glen Cavender, Jim Farley
"Keaton's best, and arguably the greatest screen comedy ever made. Against a meticulously evoked Civil War background, Buster risks life, limb, and love as he pursues his beloved railway engine, hijacked by Northern spies up to no good for the Southern cause. The result is everything one could wish for: witty, dramatic, visually stunning, and full of subtle, delightful human insights and constantly hilarious." (Time Out Film Guide) Recommended for ages 7+.
Cosponsored with the Dept of Music and the Cornell Council for the Arts. Advance tickets available at
