Trivia

The second train wreck in this film, which is also called "The Wrecker", is the same one that was staged for the climax of The Wrecker (1929). Footage of that crash, not used in the earlier film, was edited together with new shots. Another train wreck was done mostly with models and stock footage from newsreels. See more »

Average comedy/thriller/battle of the sexes.
20 April 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Mildly amusing scenario of US private detective and female insurance investigator battling for supremacy in solving a series of murders in Europe. Will they kiss and make up in the end? The bad guys are suitably sinister and new ones keep popping up just when you thought you had it all figured out. The script writer must have been short on inspiration as the same device of a train wreck is used no less than three times. But those action sequences are well filmed and I'd swear one of the crashing steam locomotives is the real thing.
