The Train (1964) DVD9
In the last days of the Nazi occupation of France, Colonel Von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) is a devoted art lover who spends hours at the Louvre admiring the masterworks by Picasso, Renoir, Gauguin and others. As the Allies draw closer to Paris, Von Waldheim decides to crate up all the museum's prizes and ship them back to Germany by train, where he will hide them away for himself. Enter Paul Labiche (Burt Lancaster), a railway company employee who knows everything there is to know about trains, and also happens to be a member of the French Resistance. Their battle of wits, based on a true story, drives the central action of The Train. Labiche and other resisters try a number of stratagems to impede the train’s progress, the most audacious of which is based on the way that the the real train was actually delayed (though additional complications have been invented for the film).
