Secretary Joyce Willecombe grows suspicious of two men boarding her train and is referred to 'Tough Willy' Calhoun, head of the Union Station police. The all-seeing, no-nonsense Calhoun is initially skeptical, but the men (who escape) prove to be involved in a kidnap case. Calhoun calls in equally tough police Inspector Donnelly, but the ruthless kidnapper's precision planning stays one jump ahead of them. Most of the action centers around bustling Union Station.Written by

This was a bit of a sleeper, better than I thought and not a well-known film to begin with, since it never came out on VHS. William Holden and Nancy Olson both worked on Sunset Boulevard this same year this was released and here are together again. Actually, I like the two a lot better in this film than the much better- known 'Boulevard.'
Yes, some of the scenes are a bit dumb but the story moves well and keeps your interest which is what a good crime story-drama should do. For some reason, I really enjoyed the train station, too. It looked awesome.
Hopefully, some day this movie will be part of a film-noir package on DVD.
