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 »
Gerard Oury is as we know the master of French comedies (he directed most of the Louis De Funes-movies) and this one brings Jean-Paul Belmondo and Bourvil into one delicious film. Don't think too much about the script and its reality-factor as a trainrobbery can never be like that but it has the fun of those typical French sixties-movies and believe me, it's a relief. It's the kind of movie you will remember for ages, especially David Niven who is called The Brain whom can be recognized by a bent over head as his IQ is too heavy (yeah it's that type of humour but it works)and as always Bourvil is superb.
