The film has been shot in two languages (French and English) with the same cast. See more »
The first car of the train would definitely not be used in a passenger train and must have carried the crew's equipment. Placing the safe car in the middle of the consist prevents passengers from going from the tail to the head of the train. The first explosion breaks the air brake circuit, then the whole train should stop, not only the tail cars. See more »
I was pleased to find this film listed, because it has floated around in the back of my movie memory for 25 years, or so. I loved it when I was a kid, it was so much fun. It was the first film with Jean-Paul Belmondo that I'd ever seen, and I thought that he was great - very cool, the epitome of 60's suave. Bourvil, his sidekick, is always worth watching, and the chemistry between him and Belmondo was hilarious (or was it?). I seem to remember David Niven putting in a fairly energetic performance, running around with his head bent over because of his super-dense brain. I thought it was all very 'groovy', and a huge laugh. But, that's just it; I haven't seen this film for years, and I can't help wondering - is it as good as I thought it was? Some things just don't stand the test of time or the drift into adulthood, and it's a sad, sobering moment when a re-watching confirms this. But, hey - I still love loads of bad films that I saw when I was a kid. Perhaps I'm too easily entertained. Hmm.
