Night Train to Munich (1940) - dir. Carol Reed
A politically-charged spy thriller with giant glorious ending… from 1940? The film is about the beginning of World War II… and it was made not that long after. It is impossible to mention Night Train without discussing Hitchcock’s the Lady Vanishes. It’s the same screenwriting duo behind this film, and the social commentary is still right there, in the forefront.
But what about the action? The film is hailed for it’s “locomotive” pace, but it’s really a rather slow film with lots of quick scenes, that ultimately end in the aforementioned finale - a finale that clearly had some influence on Wes Anderson. It is really quite a good film, and we should all take a moment and thank those film preservationists and historians out there for keeping it alive.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BABY!!!! I am so grateful to call you my mother and for all the love you’ve shown me through your movies, TV movies, TV appearances, and everything else! You are truly my inspiration in all that I do and I am so happy that you were on this earth! Now that you’re in heaven, because that’s obviously where you are :) you can watch over me from up above. You are my hero in more ways than I can count and I thank you for that. Always know that I look up to you and try every day to be more like you. I love you mama!
