Murder in the Private Car 1934
Perky Los Angeles telephone operator Ruth Raymond (Mary Carlisle) is informed by NYC lawyer Alden Murray (Porter Hall) that she's the long-lost daughter of railroad magnate Luke Carson (Berton Churchill), one of the richest men in the world. Her vengeful uncle Elwood, kidnapped the child some 16 years ago and raised her in California.
Ruth quits her job, taking along with her fellow switchboard operator Georgia (Una Merkel), and plans to meet her father, but her life is quickly in grave danger.
Soon the main characters, including Ruth's boyfriend Blake (Russell Hardie) and would-be detective and crime "deflector" Scott (Charlie Ruggles) are trapped in a train car with sealed windows and an ominous voice counting down the hours they have left to live.
