Paul Kriza is a cashier of a bank in a small town, and the happy husband of Anna and the father of four children. He is sent to New York to deliver some securities for the bank. There, he is tagged as easy-pickings by a con-game gang and Mary Brown, gang accomplice, proves he is. Waking up in the morning he discovers he has been robbed of the securities and, when he confronts the gang, he is hit on the head and taken out to be left on a railroad track. He comes to, struggles with the henchman and the man is killed when a train comes roaring by. Paul escapes but his watch is found and he is reported as the dead man. But he can't go home again.Written by

I can't believe I have found someone who has a VHS copy of this film. My father has talked to me about this film all my life. It's his number one favourite and I would love to get him a copy to watch one more time. It's his 80th birthday in December and I've now set myself the mission of getting him a copy by then. If anyone can point me in the right direction (even to borrow) in any format, I'd really appreciate it. Someone in 2001 mentioned buying it from the 'backwoods' in the US - can you give me details? Does anyone know why it hasn't made it onto TV in UK? I love a good old weepy and this sounds like it's up there with the best - WOnderful Life and all that. I saw a similar one about a girl who denies her black African heritage and thus her mother until the mother dies and she weeps over the coffin - buckets. Sadly I can't remember the name of that film, one I'd like to see again so I understand my dad's feelings HELP!
