On the trip back to New York, Lucy learns a jewel thief is on the train.
Did You Know?
To simulate the emergency braking of a speeding train, Desilu Productions was not content to use a standard method of jolting the camera and having the actors move in reaction to a non-existent jolt. Desilu wanted absolute realism, so the set containing the train's curtained berths and a hallway leading to the door with the emergency brake next to it was built in a box frame that contained a spring mechanism that was in turn triggered by the emergency brake itself. When Lucille pulled the handle of the brake, it released a metal spring that caused the entire set to lurch forward in a movement that often brought the actors to their knees; thereby accurately simulating an emergency braking of a train's movement. This is demonstrated in the special features section of the DVD. See more
