punchy train-set comedy
4 May 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Little seen but fast moving comedy with Evelyn Venable (the original Columbia ‘lady with the torch') and Victor Jory. The express of the title is a train, somewhat similar to the ‘Twentieth Century' a year earlier.

The plot is somewhat forgettable but seems to hinge on Venable being tamed by her man after leading him a merry dance. Ralph Forbes is in there again but doesn't have much more to do than he did in 'Twentieth Century'. Venable and Jory are good value though and keep the interest of the viewer. The other back stories of the train passengers are amusing but they really are very stagey caricatures.

Coming in at little over an hour, this movie certainly lives up to the implied speed of its title. Sadly it isn't likely to inspire many return journeys and seems to have fallen out of even the list of vaguely remembered 30s movies.
