"All aboard the train of mysterious events!"


  • Director: Anthony Page
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Mystery & Suspense, Comedy,
  • Studio: Hammer Film Productions
  • Subtitled | Duration: 120 Mins

This pointless but watchable remake of the much-loved Hitchcock classic of 1938 is slicker than the original - gone are the amateur model shots - but totally lacks its charm, and has none of the atmosphere of impending war that gave the original so much power. As before, Miss Froy (Angela Lansbury in high-camp mode) goes missing on a train, leaving hapless Elliott Gould and Cybill Shepherd trying to find her. It doesn't help that the two miscast stars are ruthlessly upstaged by lovable old coves Arthur Lowe and Ian Carmichael in the Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne roles of cricket-mad Charters and Caldicott. A typical case of aiming for an American audience and running out of steam in mid-Atlantic.
