Movie Info

The "Grand Hotel" format was mixed with elements from the popular railroad melodramas Rome Express and The Ghost Train in the British The Last Journey. The scene is a speeding passenger train, peopled by the usual polyglot of commuters. There's a pair of pickpockets, a detective in pursuit of those crooks, an eloping couple, a jilted suitor, a whining sourpuss, and so on and so forth. What none of these worthies know is that their ride may well be their last on Earth: The crazed engineer (Julien Mitchell), forced into retirement, intends to kill himself and his passengers by crashing the train. Fortunately, there's yet another passenger on this particular journey: A psychoanalyst (Godfrey Tearle), who anxiously tries to persuade Mitchell to give up his suicidal intentions before it's too late. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Last Journey

All Critics (1)

Suspense is well-maintained and the climax is thrilling. The acting generally is on a high level though opportunities in this type of plot are obviously limited. The direction is skillful and imaginative and the camera work is good.
