History-making movie

As reported in the March 1969 issue of the Chesapeake and Ohio Newsletter (now the C&O Historical Magazine, published by the C&O Historical Society), "Swell Guy" held its world premier on the railroad's top train, The George Washington, on Jan. 6, 1947 -- becoming the first film ever to be shown on a train. Ann Blyth joined the C&O president at the showing, which converted a diner into a movie theatre and inaugurated "Chessie Theatre on the Rails", a joint venture between the railroad and Universal-International Pictures. The service continued until 1949, then was revised for 1965-1967. It is believe, the article noted, that no other rail service offered movies until Amtrak.
