LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Harry Beaumont. Charles Ruggles, Una Merkel, Mary Carlisle, Russell Hardie, Snowflake (Fred Toones), Porter Hall, Berton Churchill. An heiress' life is at stake during an eventful railroad trip. Bizarre, incredibly silly, and incoherent, with an exciting runaway-car finale that offers too little too late. Ruggles, as a "crime deflector,'' spouts a stream of non sequiturs that are meant to be funny but mostly aren't. Walter Brennan and Akim Tamiroff have bit parts.

Good news: Switchboard operator Ruth Raymond (Mary Carlisle) is the long-lost daughter of a railroad tycoon. Bad news: The cross-country train trip she takes to claim her birthright... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Fleischer. Charles McGraw, Marie Windsor, Jacqueline White, Queenie Leonard. Hard-boiled cop, transporting a gangster's widow against his will to the trial in which she'll testify, must dodge hit men aboard their train who are trying to silence her. One of the best B's ever made--fast paced, well acted, impressively shot in claustrophobic setting. Photographed by George E. Diskant; scripted by Earl Fenton, from a story by Martin Goldsmith and Jack Leonard. Remade in 1990. Also shown in computer-colored version.

Pack your bags for one of movie history's greatest trips, a nifty film noir thriller that Time deemed worthy of being bracketed in the select group of train thrillers headed by... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman. Buster Keaton, Marion Mack, Glen Cavender, Jim Farley, Joseph Keaton. One of Keaton's best silent features, setting comedy against true Civil War story of stolen train, Union spies. Not as fanciful as other Keaton films, but beautifully done; Disney did same story in 1956 as THE GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE.

The General is a 1926 American silent comedy film released by United Artists. Inspired by the Great Locomotive Chase, which happened in 1862, the film stars Buster Keaton who... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George B. Seitz. Louis Wolheim, Jean Arthur, Robert Armstrong, Hugh Herbert, Robert Edeson. Tough but kindhearted railroad supervisor Wolheim is engaged to marry Arthur, but she falls for younger, handsomer tramp turned engineer Armstrong. Predictable, with race-against-the-clock finale. Natural Vision 70mm.

Striking footage of classic trains in action highlights this drama about a hard-scrabble railroad boss who takes a young drifter under his wing, oblivious to the developing... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Alfred Hitchcock. Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, Robert Walker, Leo G. Carroll, Patricia Hitchcock, Marion Lorne. Walker gives his finest performance as psychopath involved with tennis star Granger in "exchange murders." Lorne is unforgettable as doting mother; so is merry-go-round climax. First-class Hitchcock, based on a Patricia Highsmith novel and coscripted by Raymond Chandler. Remade as ONCE YOU KISS A STRANGER and the inspiration for THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN. British version of film, now available, runs almost two minutes longer, has a different ending and franker dialogue in the first scene where Granger and Walker meet.

Strange thing about this trip. So much occurs in pairs. Tennis star Guy (Farley Granger) hates his unfaithful wife. Mysterious Bruno (Robert Walker) hates his father. How perfect for... more

D: Alexander Mackendrick. Alec Guinness, Katie Johnson, Cecil Parker, Herbert Lom, Peter Sellers, Danny Green, Frankie Howerd, Jack Warner. Droll black comedy of not-so-bright crooks involved with seemingly harmless old lady. Guinness scores again (even his teeth are funny) with top-notch supporting cast in this little Ealing Studios gem, written by William Rose. Original British running time: 97m. Remade in 2004.
