Critic Reviews for The Titfield Thunderbolt

All Critics (1)

  • The script itself is disconcertingly short on wit, and some of its invention appears forced, and Crichton's handling fails to supply the charm that could still have been the film's justification.

    amusing old english movie about a transport dispute. stanley holloway was pretty damn funny as the rich & eccentric drinker who funded the private train just because there'd be a bar on there that opened for longer hours than the pub! just a lighthearted comedy. sid james was in it too...
