Enjoyable Monogram WWII Era B-Picture!
20 March 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The B-picture industry had a lot of material to work with during WWII.

Spy Train shows how a lot of story can be done with a small budget. The romance and mystery aboard a train serves as a great backdrop for Nazi spies, a dashing leading man(Richard Travis), his comical sidekick(Chick Chandler)and a good supporting cast. The tension of the ticking bomb in the baggage car and the race to stop the spies makes for an entertaining hour! I like Travis' line when the conductor held him for the stabbing of his pal: "..are you blowing your top?.." The only blooper noticeable is the sound of a diesel locomotive horn on a steam train.
