From happily married young couple to convicted murderer and frantic wife in just one year.
I liked this movie better than I expected I would. I particularly liked the scenes in the train station – the hustle bustle of passengers, the newsstand, and the small vignettes of travelers. I was surprised at the large number of extras given my assumption that this was a low budget film. Since I'm a sucker for "train" movies, this movie was easy to like. The character actors got the best lines and the two lead characters were kinda bland although Mary Brian always does a nice job. The stock characters (obnoxious kid, call girl, unfaithful husband, wise-cracking entertainer, private detective) were all well played as was the reporter's role. The husband certainly was quick to assume his wife's infidelity and it seems not to have occurred to him that his boss was a lecherous old snake. And the wife acts like what happened was her fault - an attitude tough to understand. I liked the ending to the movie and was surprised by it.
