This neat short film takes place entirely on board trains, recounting in flashback a World War II airman's close call with a Nazi officer as he tries to escape occupied France. Director Theodore Zichy, here just 'Zichy', was better known as an eccentric photographer obsessed with women's feet who also dabbled in racing Bugattis and film acting.
