Storyline

Irma is a woman who doesn't mind people knowing she's expensive. Nick Valentine, a nightclub owner in Chicago, has fallen hard for her and proposes marriage. She accepts, but needs to give the air to another boyfriend, Mack Graham, an assistant D.A. She does, and he doesn't take it well. Meanwhile, she's playing Nick, because she still has her real boyfriend, Vincent Lynch, stashed out of sight. The next night, all of them are on the train to New York when someone is murdered. Unfortunately for the criminal, two others are also on board: NYPD Inspector Carr, and Dr. Crabtree, a criminologist. Will someone get away with murder? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Murder in the Pullman (1932)

*** (out of 4)

Sixth film in the series has a gold digging wife (Wanda Lyon) murdered on a train during her honeymoon. It looks like it could be her old boyfriend (Donald Douglas) or perhaps her husband (Edward Arnold) but it's up to Crabtree (Donald Meek) and Carr (John Hamilton) to figure it out. From what I've seen to date this here is certainly the best film in the series as it features a wonderful supporting cast and a pretty good mystery. As the film plays out it's rather obvious who the killer is going to be but that really doesn't take away from the fun. What works best here is that Crabtree and Carr are thrown in the background as supporting players and the film belongs to Arnold and Douglas. The two men deliver fine performances and especially Arnold who many will remember from MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON or EYES IN THE NIGHT. He easily steals the film and makes his character someone you care for and can't help but feel for due to what his wife is doing to him. Meek and Hamilton are in fine form in their roles but they are mainly just in the background. Fans of mysteries from the early 30's will certainly want to check this film out even if they didn't care for some of the others in the series.
