Sean Flynn & the Cold War
27 July 2001 | by (NYC & Cherry Grove) – See all my reviews

This film starts with some fabulous twilight location shots around 1960's Berlin. - The dim and somber photography of bleak cityscapes shot from the departing train does much to enhance this vehicle to show off Errol Flynn's son, Sean. --And the handsome young actor does pretty good with the second-rate material.

Made in Europe on a shoe-string budget, almost all of the action takes place on a west-bound (from Berlin) train carrying American soldiers, a pair of newlyweds, a nurse and her patient, an all-girl group of performers, and a loud-mouthed reporter (Jose Ferrer).

During the journey, an East German refugee secretly boards the train, and the 'east-west' cold war tensions begin. The train is detained by the Russian military who want the refugee handed over to them.

The dialog is not good, the character assortment is not bad, and Sean Flynn and Jose Ferrer do their best with the material they have.

Ferrer shamelessly over-acts, but what choice did he have with such hammy lines? Sean Flynn has to work hard at it, as well, but Flynn had the added advantage of being so adorably handsome (even prettier than his famous father). Moreover, the grubby location work, as well as the confining train interiors, actually add to this film's appeal and make it easier to get past some of the tired 'cold-war-formula' dialog.

As fate would have it, while working as a war correspondent, Sean Flynn mysteriously disappeared in Viet Nam in 1970-- about 7 years after this film was made.

The cold war got him in real life, too.....
