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>

A Vitaphone short featuring Edward Arnold in a key role...
29 October 2011 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is an entertaining curiosity as far as short features go, depending on whether or not you're willing to accept the premise of a very shaky plot involving a gold-digging woman involved with three men, all of whom happen to be on the Pullman train when the murder occurs.

Of course, it's going to be up to Inspector Crabtree (Donald Meek) to solve the case with only a few clues at his disposal. He and an inspector manage to follow the dots in quick enough fashion that heads for the ending the viewer has suspected all along.

Entertaining bit of nonsense, not helped by the witless dialog and overacting of the entire cast--including those porters who are likely to make you cringe.

The portly Arnold seems to be his usual genial self at the start, but we soon learn that all is not what it seems. Passes the time quickly, but nothing to shout about.
