NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH, 1940, Disney, 90 min. Dir. Carol Reed
Director Carol Reed (THE THIRD MAN, ODD MAN OUT) was no stranger to superb, edge-of-your-seat entertainments, and he supplies all the elements here in one of his earliest, comparatively lesser-known outings. British agent Rex Harrison tries to spirit a refugee Czech scientist back to England after the Nazis kidnap him as well as his newly arrived daughter (Margaret Lockwood). With Paul Henried, Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford.
BERLIN EXPRESS, 1948, Warner Bros., 87 min. Dir. Jacques Tourneur
Robert Ryan, Merle Oberon and Paul Lukas head an international cast in the first Hollywood film shot on location in Allied-occupied postwar Germany. An ad-hoc cadre of allied officials, headed by train to a peace conference, suddenly become detectives when Germany’s most outspoken peace activist goes missing. A solid thriller, and a remarkable historical document of its time.
