Synopsis

Full-Frame, Color Tinted. 

 

Rejected by the Confederate army as unfit, and taken for a coward by his beloved Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), young Johnny Gray (Keaton) is given a chance to redeem himself when Yankee spies steal his cherished locomotive. Johnny wages a one-man war against hijackers, an errant cannon and the unpredictable hand of fate while roaring along the iron rails. "Every shot has the authenticity and the unassuming correct composition of a Matthew Brady Civil War photograph", wrote film historian David Robinson, "No one - not even Griffith or Huston and certainly no Fleming (Gone With the Wind) - caught the visual aspect of the Civil War as Keaton did".
