Harry Williams, member of the rhythm & blues band Bloodstone, is about to go onstage for a concert when he is hit on the head. The rest that follows is his dream. The four band members become conductors on a train filled with (impersonated) actors and characters from the 1930s such as W.C. Fields, Dracula, and Scarlett O'Hara. For instance 'Jay Lawrence' (q.v.), who gave a brief impression of Clark Gable in _Stalag 17 (1953)_ (q.v.), plays Gable at greater length. Patterned after movies by the Marx Brothers and the Beatles, "Train Ride" features various songs. The thin plot requires the singing conductors to solve a mystery; Marlon Brando is murdering Nelson Eddy, Jeanette McDonald, and others by suffocating them in his armpits. Arriving in Hollywood, the Bloodstone boys are turned into wax sculptures by Brando.
