Laughs and thrills come thick and fast in this Edgar Wallace comedy-thriller with a hair-raising car versus train chase.

Crime 1938 80 mins


Laughs and thrills are dealt out in equal measure in this lively Edgar Wallace comedy-thriller, which has a terrific car versus train chase as its hair-raising climax. A Scotland Yard inspector, deftly played by Jack Hulbert (who co-wrote the film), uncovers a dastardly plot by a notorious gang of crooks - unusually led by a woman (Genevieve Tobin) - to rob a train of its gold bullion cargo. A fair head of steam builds up as our hero attempts to save the woman as well as save the day.

The railway scenes were filmed on the Bath-Westbury and Limpley Stoke-Camerton lines in Wiltshire.
