  1. I’ve wanted to see this for a while, but I haven not been able to get my hands on a copy. I don’t think I hold the same love of trains as you do… my 2 year old niece does though. Maybe I can watch this with her.

  2. Because we live in the CGI era, I think it’s a particular pleasure to watch movies where there are great stunts which we know are real. This certainly applies to Keaton and his contemporaries (like Harold Lloyd hanging off the clock hand high over the street), as it applies to the stunts in Stagecoach.

    This is probably related to the emphasis on the real singing in Les Miserables. We like a bit of reality, because we don’t get as much of it as we used to.
