Murder on A Train
17 April 2010 | by (Essex, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is another of the Merton park film shorts that make up the series of low budget second features which were known in British cinemas as 'Scotland Yard' This series of film shorts were based on the files of the 'Scotland Yard' police force in London rather that the regional ones. This one was based on the case known to the police as 'The Matrion Case' As usual it starts with the presenter Edgar Lustgarten telling you background information to get you in the mood to watch the film. In this one he starts by talking about men travelling across the earth either above it or below it. It then goes into the story. The story opens with an express stream train travelling from Seahaven to the Waterloo station in London. On it's way there the train passes through Branton station where the body of Engineer Edward Matrion falls onto the platform dead from the moving train. Superintendent Duggan is called in to investigate as it looks like Matrion had been strangled to death. This short seems to have had more budget than usual as there are more police officers and people as well as location work at some of the train stations in London including Waterloo. Duggan finds out that before he was killed Matrion stayed in a hotel in Seahaven under the name Baylis, A dead body of his secretary Elizabeth Welton is later found off of one of the local cliffs with a lot more people around to retrieve it. The killer of both Matrion and Welton is later revealed to be middle eastern student Josef Armed.
