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.

Story not great, but rare scenes of PRR
18 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Victor McLaglen was at his best in Gunga Din or The Quiet Man, as a boisterous, brawling Scot (in real life, McLagelen had been a military provost in WWI in (if I recall properly) Constaintinople and was well used to using his fists and strength to enforce British military law). Unfortunately, The Broadway Limited was more of a romance than an action movie (except for some very good railroad scenes on the Pennsylvania RR), and McLaglen's acting appears forced and uncomfortable for the big man. On the other hand, J. Farrel McDonald once again demonstrated that he must have been a railroad man prior to becoming a good character actor. Too bad that Wallace Beery wasn't in this movie as well, since Beery had been an engine hostler for the Santa Fe and would have been more at home romancing the love interest.
