Although the two men stay in their private berth and are oblivious to what is going on as the decoupled passenger car rolls down the side track into Gudavia, multiple exterior shots of the rolling car show different sets of windows either open or closed from shot-to-shot, although there was no one else on the car to open or close the windows.

Now here's a real oddity. Made before the British scifi/horror boom of the late 50s, this eccentric film mixes gruesome scientific experiments with farcical comedy, set in a fictitious Iron Curtain state. And one of the stars, playing a straight role, is Leslie Phillips. So is it any good? Well the clash of styles is somewhat disconcerting, but the film is attractively photographed and the action and horror scenes well staged. Some talented personnel worked on it ; the likes of Ted Moore and John Box, plus John Gilling who went on to do some good Hammer horrors. "The Gamma People" isn't quite in that league but still merits a viewing.
