We were very lucky to see Buster Keaton's "The General" with full orchestra and Carl Davis conducting his own score. It was brilliant and really added a lot to the film.

The only slight problem was that Davis wore a jacket which must have been acquired from a production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", and this nightmare garment was only too visible although the house lights were down!
