The Train

Post by jfko6 » Thu Aug 11, 2016 9:56 pm

The Train is a 1964 war film directed by John Frankenheimer from a story and screenplay by Franklin Coen and Frank Davis, based on the non-fiction book Le front de l'art by Rose Valland, who documented the works of art placed in storage that had been looted by the Germans from museums and private art collections. It stars Burt Lancaster, Paul Scofield, and Jeanne Moreau.

Set in August 1944, the film, shot in black-and-white, sets French Resistance-member Paul Labiche (Lancaster) against German Colonel Franz von Waldheim (Scofield), who is attempting to move stolen art masterpieces by train to Germany. Inspiration for the scenes of the train's interception came from the real-life events surrounding train No. 40,044 as it was seized and examined by Lt. Alexandre Rosenberg of the Free French forces outside Paris. - Wikipedia

Have loved this one since I was a kid. Burt Lancaster rocked.

I recommend getting ahold of the DVD that has a second audio track with director John Frankenheimer's commentary.

Watch it the regular way first, then a second time with the commentary on. Great stories about the production.
