“Worth your time” “The best 63 minutes you’ll ever spend” “Surprisingly good B-movie” (IMDB reviews quotes).
If you like mysteries set on long-distance trains, you’ll love this one. It’s a pre-code pip! Ben Lyon stars at the head of a good cast that includes Dwight Frye and Nat Pendleton in a straight dramatic role. The production values are excellent. Highly recommended even for those who aren’t mystery buffs. IMDB rating 6.9.

A '30s B-picture that's round and firm and fully packed.
If there were an award for most plot twists, gags and engaging characters per minute ever, this film would definitely be in the running. Punching well above its weight, it delivers exceptional entertainment value, enhanced by the intrinsic excitement of a fast moving train. An hour surprisingly well spent.
