Fleeing from the unknown best describes this movie
26 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are several well schooled and effective actors in The Last Train From Madrid. They all give performances which, for this era of movie making, are consistent with a high level of accomplishment. Unfortunately, due to the lack of real life detail about the Spanish civil war that is the background for the movie, it does not get an overall good rating from this 21st century commenter (who has made use of the contemporary historical writings that are now available about the Republican/Francoist civil war). Although this film is made early in the career of Anthony Quinn his part, such as it is, gives a 21st century person some evidence of why Mr. Quinn's career grew so rapidly. Some actors labor for years, crafting an image that eventually rises to a level to be appreciated by the general public. When one looks at the complete works of Anthony Quinn it is evident that he also worked hard at the craft of acting and developed a manner of presentation that became more and more effective as the years progressed. However, from the very early Anthony Quinn presentations one sees a persona that, even though a work in progress, carries the strength of actors who had much more experience and schooling in the trade.

Another commenter lamented that the movie did not have any big name actors. I guess the performances of Dorothy Lamour, Gilbert Roland, and Robert Cummings were somehow missed by the commenter. While without historical merit, the film is entertaining and provides a window into the acting methods of early 20th century film making.
