Movie Info

Based on the book Report on a Fugitive by Gordon Wellesley, this is an espionage film that has been stated by critics to possibly be among the top ten spy movies ever made. Replete with intrigue and suspense, the movie has all of the principles on a train as a scientist's daughter joins forces with Allied intelligence in a rescue effort involving top secrets. This movie, made just prior to WWII, gave a more temperate view of the Nazis than later movies.

Audience Reviews for Night Train to Munich (Gestapo)

    It's cross and doublecross in the days immediately preceding WW2 as a scientist and his pretty daughter become the pawns between two competing countries. Paul Henreid is smoothly excellent as the savvy and smooth rep for the Axis Powers, nearly unbeatable. And Rex Harrison is the guy for the Allies, w/o a prayer to go on. Carol Reed paces the thing like a ride down a ski slope, going faster and faster ... I actually liked this better than the ballyhooed The Lady Vanishes, to which it's often compared. And the veddy English team of Radford and Wayne veddy nearly steal the whole thing outright.

    Sure its basically a propaganda film, but a thrilling and entertaining one. Rex Harrison's stoic, witty secret agent is a great character.

    Decent older film. Wasn't quite my type of thing, but really couldn't find fault with it. May be a little dated for some tastes, it was for me, though I could appreciate it.

    this is a spin-off of the lady vanishes by the same writers and even includes the humorous english travelers chalders and caldicott, as well as leading lady margaret lockwood albeit as a different character. one of the more successful attempts at pulling off hitchcock style lighthearted adventure. rex harrison is charming and hilarious in one of his first leading roles. the film's title was changed from gestapo for obvious reasons. it was the last fun british film made about the conflict for some time. there's no doubt the plot gets somewhat outlandish. still worth checking out for fans of the original
