Editorial Reviews

Eccentric director Ivan Ivanski decrees that his star, April Tremaine, must have a baby to generate publicity for her sagging career. He conspires to hire an infant as a "stand-in" for April's "newborn." The proud mother and child set off for Manhattan aboard the Broadway Limited, which is always crawling with newspaper reporters. The train is soon abuzz with rumors regarding the baby's origins and the identity of its father. But Ivan's plan is derailed, when it appears that April's baby matches the description of a kidnapped infant that is the focus of an intensive five-state police manhunt!

Academy-Award winner Victor McLaglen leads a strong ensemble which includes Zasu Pitts, Leonid Kinskey, Dennis O'Keefe and Patsy Kelly in this zany Hal Roach-produced comedy. McLaglen took home an Oscar in 1935 for his performance in John Ford's The Informer, but his unforgettable characterizations are integral to many Hollywood classics, most notably Gunga Din (1939), She Wore A Yellow Ribbon (1949) and The Quiet Man (1952).

This little comedy churned out in 1941 takes place on the Pennsylvania Railroad's famous "Broadway Limited." The thin plot revolves around a Hollywood actess travelling with her "adopted" baby as a publicity stunt. The twist is that baby may or may not be kidnapped. The character performances of Patsy Kelly and Leonid Kinsky keep the whole thing bearable.

Train buffs will like the interior and exterior shots of the famed "Broadway Limited" and its Raymond Loewy-designed locomotives and passenger cars (and there are plenty).

The DVD recording, on the other hand, leaves plenty to be desired and the "RE" logo floating in the corner for the full length of the DVD is positively infuriating.

Buy it if you like the train, otherwise pass it by!

Format: DVD
This Alpha Video is a DvD-R. I bought this particular version because Alpha Video normally produces factory pressings of nostalgic films. What I got was a factory sealed case with a scratched DvD-R with Alpha Video logo. If cheap DvD-Rs are being sold, they need to be declared. Nowhere was it stated that this particular product by Alpha video was a DvD-R. I won't buy Alpha Video products any longer if this is what they are now selling.

Edit: I notice Amazon has finally declared this product to be a DVD-R. It was not declared when I purchased it, and I made a formal complaint to Amazon at the time.

Interesting story line, but this movie is perfect for fans of the PRR. Many interior shots of the Broadway Limited, as well as exterior views of the cars and engines.

I can only give two stars for this dvd. Not because of content and most certainly not because of delivery, it arrived QUICKLY! I'm giving it 'two Stars' because of its 'quality'. I gave it 'two stars' because the movie itself is good but the 'quality' is extremely POOR!!!!! The case photo is very attractive and motivated me to purchase it for my husband, a train enthusiast, as a gift for this past Christmas. When we viewed the movie together, my gosh... the storyline is cute and the train footage is absolutely EXCELLENT... but the 'quality' of the film or whatever is was transferred from is ABSOLUTELY 'TERRIBLE'!!!! I am not going after the seller but they should be aware of what some of these DVD companies are selling them for the public to buy! We're going to keep looking and try to 'TRACK' ================== down another copy of this (what would have been a 'fun family' 'train movie') to watch'.
