Eye-Candy for Train Buffs
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It can truly be said that an "uncredited co-star" in this film is the Santa Fe Railway's luxurious, all-Pullman "Super Chief" streamliner. Nearly all the action takes place aboard the train, but the set pieces used are NOT studio mock-ups. In late 1951, the Santa Fe had just taken a large order of brand-new equipment to upgrade their flagship train, and they allowed Brenco Pictures Corp. to disassemble the interiors of a brand-new Sleeping Car, Dining Car, and Vista-Dome Lounge Car, and truck these interiors over to their sound stages for filming. Thus, the tables, chairs, lighting fixtures, and other accoutrements are not some director's "concept" of first-class passenger train travel, but are the actual interiors of the actual cars on the real-life "Super Chief." Anyone who's not a railfan will probably find this irrelevant, but for those who care about such things, this now qualifies as rare archival footage.

Whatever your feelings about trains, one of the highlights of the film is Hans Conreid, who turns in a superb bit of physical comedy in the train's on-board Barber Shop.
