Goofs

At one point the diplomat steals a Beechcraft Model 18 from an alleged Indian airport. All the aircraft on the flightline are American models wearing U.S. N-registrations and the airport is obviously in Southern California due to the mountains and eucalyptus trees visible. The Beech he commandeers is a civilianized ex-USAAF AT-11 Kansan with the former bombardier glazed nose faired over with metal. Once airborne, the Beech shown is a round-nosed C-45 model. When the actor leaves the cockpit to bail out, another sideview of the C-45 shows a pilot still in the pilot's position. See more »

Rehearsal for "Ramar"
23 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little adventure yarn is set in India, which was also one of the settings for star Jon Hall's subsequent TV series, "Ramar of the Jungle." The actor who plays the crooked bartender in this movie would later play Ramar's British sidekick. In a more literary vein, I wonder if this picture was inspired by the novel "Bhowani Junction," which came out the same year. Like the novel, this movie is about terrorism in post-independence India, with a train being the engine of the plot (so to speak). And the main male character in the novel had the last name "Savage," while in this movie Hall plays an American diplomat named "Viking." Coincidence? (Anyway, as movie fans know, "Bhowani Junction" went on to become an Ava Gardner/Stewart Granger movie in 1956.) "Last Train from Bombay" is no epic, but it's full of action, thanks to the inept terrorists who are continually capturing Viking. They never tie him up or even lock him up, and he makes them pay dearly every time. He punches them and runs, and they wince with frustration as he gets away to fight another round. Their failure to learn from their mistakes is no doubt what saved India.
