Breakheart Pass (25-Dec-1975)

Director: Tom Gries

Writer: Alistair MacLean

From novel: Breakheart Pass by Alistair MacLean

Music by: Jerry Goldsmith

Producer: Jerry Gershwin

Keywords: Western, Mystery, Train

A medical relief train bound for Fort Humboldt via the Rocky Mountains suffers several onboard murders as it transports prisoner John Deakin, an arsonist and murderer. Not everyone on the train may be what he seems. Murder mystery/actioner set in the Old West, with Charles Bronson at the height of his career and abilities. Quite enjoyable despite its flaws.
