Love, locomotives and laughs! On this special edition DVD, the original film has been digitally restored frame by frame and is accompanied by a symphonic score written and recorded by Jo Hisaishi, one of modern cinema's leading composers.

Johnny Gray (Keaton), is a brave little Southern engineer on the Western and Atlantic Rail Road running through Georgia in 1861. The Civil War is declared and Johnny tries to enlist but is told that he is more valuable as an engineer. When his train, containing his girlfriend Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), is stolen by Union spies, Johnny takes another locomotive and the most memorable chase in silent film history ensues...

Of special interest is the amazing fact that Keaton performed all of the dangerous and hair-raising stunts himself, numerous times, on real moving trains. One of Keaton's best silent features, it is a tremendous action comedy with a host of visual gags.
