A not bad low, low budget caper film set on a train. A shipment of gold being shipped to London is targeted by a group of thieves. A reporter and his new wife on their honeymoon, a pair of old maid mystery book writers and a wronged woman all throw a wrench in the thieves plans. The crooks intend to drug the guards and toss the gold off the train at an arranged spot to be picked up by other gang members. As with all "perfect plans this one goes for a loop. With a bigger budget this could of been a first rate thrill ride of a caper film. Having said that, this 58 minute film keeps the action moving and the cast and crew make the most of that 58 mins. OK timewaster.
The Gold Express is another 'Orient Express' style movie where the
action takes place in the claustrophobic confines of moving railway
A newspaper reporter (Vernon Gray) is sent to cover the movement of gold bullion on board an express train on his wedding night! Of course his new bride (Ann Walford) accompanies him to make the female interest of the film.
There are the usual numerous sub-plots within the story, comedic and otherwise. The acting is quite good for non-mainstream actors in this short (~ 1 hour) romp.
Overall; only the British film industry could produce such a pleasant way to spend an hour of your life without having to think. --- 3.5/ 5
