Storyline

Harry Williams, member of the rhythm & blues band, Bloodstone, is about to go onstage for a concert when he is hit on the head. The rest that follows is his dream. The four band members become conductors on a train filled with characters and (impersonated) actors from the 1930s, such as W.C. Fields, Dracula, and Scarlett O'Hara. Various songs are featured. The singing conductors are obliged to solve a mystery; Marlon Brando is murdering Nelson Eddy, Jeanette McDonald and others by suffocating them in his armpits. A wacky funeral, a fight with a gorilla, and the threat of being turned into a wax museum figure are all part of Harry's dream. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Escapism, silly, but funny too
23 January 2000 | by (Nebraska, US) – See all my reviews

We saw this movie when it was released in 1978. It was one of the silliest movies that I had ever seen, but I go to the movies to escape from real life, to be entertained. This movie had great musical numbers (I've had the soundtrack for 15 years) and quite a few entertaining moments. If you're a 30s or 40s movie buff and a fan of the old Fred Astaire musicals, you'll like the dance numbers alone. If you can sit back and see the humor in life, just let yourself go, then you'll enjoy "TRAINRIDE TO HOLLYWOOD".
