A Thrilling "B", Especially for Train Buffs!
7 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Like "Defenders of the Law", this is another interesting "B" scripted by Hampton Del Ruth (this time in collaboration with skillful director Phil Whitman). As the title implies, this one is an absolute must for railroad buffs – and unlike some other "B" movies which promise much but deliver little, this one doesn't disappoint, with some terrific train footage at both the beginning and the climax (which will have most fans on the edge of their seats). Queenly villainess Hedda Hopper is top billed over the lovely Marceline Day, Nick Stuart makes a more-than-adequate hero, Bryant Washburn of course is a collaborating heavy, while Al Cooke and the super-attractive Carol Tevis play a comic groom and bride.
