Night Train to Munich (Gainsborough Pictures, Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison)


Night Train to Munich: Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat’s lively screenplay contributed much to the success of Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes, and they came up trumps a couple of years later with a variation on that comedy thriller, even giving the cricket obsessed Charters and Caldicott another innings and Margaret Lockwood another star role.

Carol Reed’s direction lacks the light touch, but he makes good use of the train, and there’s an exciting climax set in a cable car. The suave hero is Rex Harrison, posing as a German to outwit the Nazi agent (Henreid) on the track of a Czech inventor and his daughter.
