1927: Buster Keaton's silent comedy film "The General" has its New York City premiere after earlier showings in Tokyo and London. The movie, an adventure-epic filmed toward the end of the silent era, would receive poor reviews and struggle at the box office, but is today considered by critics as one of the greatest films ever made.
