Storyline

As a ploy to gain publicity, a motion picture director wants his star actress to take a baby with her on a train trip. The director's secretary asks the train's engineer, an old boyfriend, for help. As the engineer ponders what to do, a stranger in the train station tells him that he has a baby that could be used. On board the train, the actress meets a young doctor whom she knew in school, and whom she is still in love with. The presence of the baby causes a series of misunderstandings between them, but the real problems begin when the engineer begins to suspect that the baby may have been kidnapped.

Fun movie with interesting cast and great railroad scenery.
4 January 2006 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie turned up in one of those cheap 50 movie comedy DVD packs recently and I was surprised to see a number of great character actors of the 40s playing lead parts.

The story itself is pretty simplistic and has been covered by other reviewers. Having typed that, I should add that the script is tight, the performances fine and the direction good. So what you have is a typical 40s screwball comedy which will provide an enjoyable diversion for all age groups.

Finally but most interesting of all are the outstanding Pennsy railroad scenes, especially the pacing shots. Unusually, railroad fans are treated to a number of long shots and station scenes.

All in all, good fun for railroad and comedy fans alike.
