Good adventure & history
9 April 2005 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Casablanca Express assumes an almost historic docu-drama style from its start ... but picks up a good intellectual interest and suspense which Hitchcock would savor for its subtle 'dry' approach. The plot entails a special American and Allied military intelligence detail escorting PM Winston Churchill to his wartime casablanca Conference with pres. Franklin Roosevelt. Not gimmicky - but highly realistic for its time period-set in French colonial North Africa - then still wavering for & against Vichy France. Good cast with Glenn Ford as an American General in US Army Intelligence; and Donald Pleasance as his British counterpart. Found out from IMDb that the two male actors as the US intelligence agents aboard Churchill's secret train - Jason Connery & Francesco Quinn .. are the sons of film stars Sean Connery & Anthony Quinn. Directed smoothly in a verismo style & produced/released in 1988 .. the film will hold with suspense & entertain the mind as if an historic archive. Its realism exudes the director's style as if performed by non-actors (ie. actual agents & military).

As a viewing note -- the edition I saw was Family Treasury DVD classics -- these are also being discounted inexpensively in units apart from the Family Treasury group buy (perhaps as over-runs) at $1 to $5 for two -- they are not pirated -- worth the higher price & a good deal at the discount.
