Excellent, Great Graphics, Story has Great Intrigue
29 March 2017 | by (Michigan, United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on WTBS (Turner Broadcasting System) back in the early infancy of Cable Television and WTBS. It has stuck with me all of these years. Fortunately my oldest son was able to get a copy of the movie recorded off of the television and I keep it well protected! With Gene Berry, John Saxon, Senta Berger and even the Engineer "Moustache" it was well acted.

This was a great crime drama based on the Istanbul Express (with John Saxon as the Security Officer for the Train, Cheval) but the story also carried onto other locations as the story progressed. I enjoyed it immensely (it has a great plot) from start to finish and as I stated, it stuck with me through the years. I don't know if it ever went to print, but I think that this would be well received by the viewing public and lovers of the Film NOIR after nearly 50 years from it's debut. Made in 1968 for television I think it should be revisited and given every consideration for print availability. They are always looking for these classics, this is one !! (If it did go to print, I would pay an exceptional price for a copy.)
