"If you wink, you'll miss a thrill!"
20 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

A prolific writer of blood-and-thunder melodramas, Lincoln J. Carter specialized in railroad settings. Although his plays were not acclaimed by the critics (in fact they rarely opened in New York), they were extremely popular with touring companies before World War One. "The Arizona Express" was one of his most famous offerings, and here, considerably expanded, it has been brought to the screen with at least three times as many thrills.

Director Thomas Buckingham is another forgotten man who deserves to be re-instated. That "The Arizona Express" is so successful is due not only to its many edge-of-the-seat action highlights (all of them breathtakingly staged against real locations), but to the skill with which the movie has been cut and paced and to the fine acting Buckingham has elicited from his players. The only disappointment is Pauline Starke, who displays plenty of stamina but little charisma here.

Production values are mighty impressive, with lots of location shooting and first-rate photography by Sidney Wagner.
