Frankenheimer also offers insight into star Burt Lancaster, who got to employ his experience as a gymnast in the film in a breathtaking extended action sequence. The Train was released a year before composer Maurice Jarre's popular breakthrough with Doctor Zhivago, but his fine score is rightly featured here on a separate "music only" track. The widescreen transfer is also flawless on a DVD that bears repeated viewing.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
In this story based on an actual World War II incident, the mandate to save treasured paintings provides a thought-provoking backdrop for exceptional action sequences. Shooting on location in deep focus black-and-white, and surrounding Burt Lancaster and Paul Scofield with a French supporting cast (including Jeanne Moreau), director John Frankenheimer grounds the French Resistance's efforts to stop a stolen art-laden German train from leaving France in a gritty realism that underlines the human cost of a mission that offers only symbolic rewards. Extending that realism to the train exploits, Frankenheimer used actual trains and stations to action scenes that were as suspenseful as possible, particularly when the art train will be too close to a German munitions train targeted by Allied air forces. The depth of characterization renders the action (and its outcome) all the more potent; Lancaster did his own stunts, adding an extra dash of intensity to his onscreen deeds. Praised for its masterfully and intelligently composed thrills, The Train was nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Its influence can be seen from the hair-raising car chases in Bullitt (1968) and The French Connection (1971) to the one-vehicle actioner Speed (1994).

    Hidden Treasure!

    If you've not seen this late at night then you've missed a real classic. Suspenseful story of one man wrestling with his conscience and realizing that he could do his part to fight the bad guys during WWII. A great story, well-acted and photographed. If you are a fan of Burt Lancaster, John Frankenheimer, or just a railroad buff, this film won't disappoint. Highly recommended!
