Never dream of pulling the emergency cord
5 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Richard Todd (John) and Christine Norden (Susan Wilding) elope on a train to begin a new life together, leaving behind their current spouses Valerie Hobson (Carol) and Alexander Gauge (Jerves Wilding). Whilst on the train, Todd bottles it at the 11th hour, pulls the emergency cord and jumps off the train to go back to his wife Hobson before she suspects anything. However, once home, the train, which he stopped near their house is involved in a crash that claims many lives, including that of Norden. The hunt is on for the person who pulled the emergency cord and Ralph Truman (Inspector Waterson) is suspicious of Todd. There is a good helping of suspense and there are some twists in the story along the way.

The cast are good in this film and there are plenty of good scenes. The film involves you from the beginning right up until the climax and the director throws in some surreal stuff towards the end. Watch out for Roger Moore sitting in the background at a cafe in Paddington Station while Todd and Norden order tea and rock cakes. The rock cake takes on a significance in this tale.
