The Central Canada Film Group is featuring two silent films Friday as part of their Films You Might Have Missed series. The group’s Collin Davis says first is Buster Keaton in The General filmed in 1926 and ranked among the greatest films ever made. He explains it takes place during the American civil war and Buster plays a railroad engineer rejected by the Confederate army so he sets out to single handedly win the war with the help of his locomotive. He adds for their double feature they are also seeing the return of one of the other great silent geniuses of the 1920s Harold Lloyd starring in 1922’s Grandma’s Boy in which he plays the local coward who through the help of his loving Grandmother finds the strength to face up to the local bully.
The films are being shown Friday night at 7:30 in the Hapnot Collegiate theatre with a silver collection as admission.
