Not such a bad thing...

The Gold Express is another 'Orient Express' style movie where the action takes place in the claustrophobic confines of moving railway carriages.

A newspaper reporter (Vernon Gray) is sent to cover the movement of gold bullion on board an express train – on his wedding night! Of course his new bride (Ann Walford) accompanies him to make the female interest of the film.

There are the usual numerous sub-plots within the story, comedic and otherwise. The acting is quite good for non-mainstream actors in this short (~ 1 hour) romp.

Overall; only the British film industry could produce such a pleasant way to spend an hour of your life without having to think. --- 3.5/ 5
