BRISTOL, RI — The First Congregational Church’s Silent Film Series will present the Buster Keaton classic, "The General" on Saturday, March 7. This film is considered to be Keaton’s finest film. Made at a cost of $750,000 in 1927, the film is now ranked as one of the top 30 best films ever made. The movie chronicles one person’s comedic journey through the Civil War Era. Keaton’s character stumbles through a series of catastrophic events as only this great physical comedian can do. Keaton performed his own stunts in the film often in close proximity to moving steam locomotives. As an added attraction, this event will feature an old-fashioned sing-along with familiar titles that everyone knows. Live musical accompaniment for the film and sing along will be provided by Jim Morgan at two keyboards. Morgan is a master improvisationalist and will make the film come alive. The film will shown in the DeWolf Room at First Congregational Church, 300 High St., at 7 p.m. Admission: Adults: $8; kids and seniors: $6. For more information, www.fccbristol.org.
