Tense, well-done Cold War thriller
20 August 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Low-budget but not low-quality Cold War drama about an East German refugee who slips aboard a US military train leaving West Berlin and passing through East Germany. The East German and Soviet authorities discover that he's aboard and stop the train, demanding that he be turned over to them. Sean Flynn, Errol's impossibly good-looking son, does a first-rate job as the young American army officer in charge of the train who finds himself caught in the center of Cold War tensions and Jose Ferrer is good, if a bit showy, as a seen-it-all reporter aboard the train. The film takes place mostly aboard the cramped train and, while the dialog lags in spots and the direction is a bit ragged, overall it's a commendable, very worthy effort.
