Berlin Express (1-May-1948)

Director: Jacques Tourneur

Writers: Harold Medford; Curt Siodmak

Music by: Frederick Hollander

Producer: Bert Granet

Keywords: Thriller, Film Noir

Train passengers from an eclectic mix of European countries travel Paris to Berlin via Frankfurt, teaming together to solve the apparent assassination of pacifist Dr. Bernhardt. Parts of this thriller are first-rate, other parts just not up to the task. The heavy-handed narration is bothersome. Excellent shots of bombed-out Berlin and Frankfurt, with permission of the Allied Occupation.
