The General

During America’s Civil War Union spies steal engineer Johnnie Gray’s beloved locomotive The General – his lady love, Annabelle Lee, aboard an attached boxcar – and he single-handedly must do all in his power to both get The General back and to rescue Annabelle. Released throughout most of the world in 1927, this Silent comedy-action film flopped when originally released, but now is regarded as one of the great American motion pictures. The story is based on actual historic events.
