Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The General [DVD] (DVD)
Definitely worth getting this Cinema Club version rather than the endless nastily cobbled together ones I've seen from cheapo box sets.
The original film is well transferred. Plays at a suitable speed and has delightful music and clear captions. And it's still very funny. Astonishingly so really.
Much of the extras are kind of missable but there is an extraordinary documentary of Buster making a comedy short in the sixties which is more revealing of the dreadful disregard that was meted out to him by the time he was a senior citizen.
This DVD made my Christmas. Just be sure it is this version you go for rather than any cut price one. The difference is like those soundalike LPs you used to get from Woolworths in the 70s. Flippin' awful.
