An Eclectic Group Of Passengers
28 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Elements of the plot of the classic John Ford film Stagecoach are to be found in Train To Tombstone where 90% of the film takes place in a passenger car on said train. In fact star Don Barry joins the trip just as John Wayne as the Ringo Kid did in Stagecoach, after the train as pulled out of the station heading for Tombstone.

And as in Stagecoach the passengers are a good cross section of western America and all are not as they seem to be. Considering that Lippert Pictures is a low budget outfit they did not do a half bad job in staging both a real Indian attack and an outlaw made up to look like Indians attack.

Wally Vernon had a nice role and a funny one as corset salesman looking to keep waists from showing unnecessary waste. I also enjoyed Minna Phillips as the inebriated spinster aunt who likes to commune with all kinds of spirits.

Train To Tombstone is economical on plot and filled with action, your perfect B western.
