This is a classic thriller from the 70's. Lancaster is superb, i highly recommend it to anyone with a passion of train films. The score is brilliant, especially for the Cassandra crossing shots. The only thing i cant put my finger one is the title sequence at the start, i believe they could have related it better to the plot. I wish they would make films like this today, they just don't compare. If you want another train classic, look for, 'the train' by John frankenhiemer, and the North West Frontier. (1956). The three best train flicks ever made in my opinion. All Great Flicks. And personal Favourites. BTW, stumbled across the DVD in a bargain bin. So there has been one made. Just look hard and you should be able to find one. LOL, $2.99, what a find.
