"The Train"

A few weekends ago I saw a great, old movie on one of the classic movie channels, "The Train." The plot of the movie which was made in 1964 involves, an inspector of a French railway attempting to prevent a trainload of priceless French paintings from being stolen by the Nazis. The only movie star whom I knew was Burt Lancaster, and I can only assume the remainder of the cast were European-know stars.

The movie is truly very good, and reminds me other World War II films which were made during that period of time. If you like suspense tossed in with your history, you will enjoy "The Train."

I attempted to find just a clip of the film for you, but instead found the entire available for you on your computer at this link:

Personally, I would rather watch the movie on TV or by DVD, but if you don't mind being on the computer long enough to watch the entire movie, you may; or if you just would like to see a few minutes of it, you may do that as well. In any case, I hope you will enjoy "The Train" as much as I did!

Historically yours,


  1. This movie sounds fantastic. I'll have to share it with my brother too. We are both history and mystery buffs. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I'm so glad you left it because now I have found yours! I love the historical element of yours--very unique and interesting! What a cool idea!

  2. I posted a video on my art blog along with an update of where I am with the Artistic Mother projects.

  3. Thanks for this link - sounds like my kind of film. Like the idea of the stolen art...
