Aside from making no sense, poor writing and dumb characters, the film isn't all that bad!
20 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

When the film begins, Nadine (Anna Sten) is working hard practicing for her citizenship exam. She desperately wants to become a US citizen. However, when her boss, the Professor, is murdered, the police inexplicably blame her and are going to deport her!

Soon she's on a train headed to New York for the deportation and along are a host of other deportees including a one-dimensional communist and a gangster. You know that SOMETHING bad will prevent the train from arriving in New York--either other gangsters or spies will soon be arriving. Soon Nadine and a very stereotypical reporter are off the train--running cross country while being chased by evil folks.

This film is obviously a very low-budget B-movie. Like many Bs, this one was hastily written and has a few broad and annoying characters and isn't especially enjoyable. It also makes very little sense most of the time. It's obvious that realism is NOT a strong point in this movie! Overall, the film offers few flashes of brilliance and is, at best, a time-passer.
