From The Vault: The Man Who Watched Trains Go By or The Paris Express (1952)

THE MAN  WHO WATCHED TRAINS GO BY 1952 or The Paris Express

Claude Rains is The Man Who Watched Trains!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you might have picked up on the fact that I adore Claude Rains, and any film his wonderful presence has graced. Masterpiece or B-grade picture, he brings an inimitable style to any movie! Here: Claude Rains plays a mild-mannered clerk named Kees Popinga who discovers that his boss Julius de Koster, Jr. (Herbert Lom) has wiped out the company funds, while under the influence of a beautiful Parisian girl, Michele Rozier played by Marta Toren.

Popinga takes the money and goes on the lam after killing de Koster, while the police are in hot pursuit.

Also starring the lovely Anouk Aimee as Jeanne the prostitute.

This obscure thriller is directed and co-scripted by Harold French based on the novel by George Simenon.

There are thousands of films in my collection, this is just one of them! See it for yourself-MonsterGirl
