Audience Reviews for Union Station

Watched this one on Netflix Stream, a awesome movie about a kidnapping. Supposed to be on Long Island, Had towns Westhampton, Freeport, Riverview, gave the impression of NYC crime, whole film was actually made in California. This is awesome film noir at its best, a blind girl is kidnapped and a ransom must be made. Will keep you on the edge of your seat. 5 stars. 3-10-13

requiring a big dose of suspension of disbelief from the get go but, that aside, a very good low budget thriller. nice pairing of young william holden and nancy olson in the same year they did 'sunset blvd'. funny to see barry fitzgerald as the police inspector threatening suspects and telling his men, 'make it look accidental'

Someone's kidnapped the blind daughter of a wealthy tycoon and the L.A.P.D. is hot on their trail. William Holden and Nancy Olson are united once again (see also Sunset Boulevard) in this crime drama set mainly in L.A.'s Union Train Station.
