Rome Express Blu-Ray
A key 1930s thriller from director Walter Forde, Rome Express stars Conrad Veidt - in his first British film role - alongside Cedric Hardwicke and Gordon Harker as intrigue unfolds on the legendary express train that once linked Paris to Rome. Whimsically scripted by Sidney Gilliat, this seminal adventure would ultimately inspire a genre of thrillers and is presented here in a brand-new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited aspect ratio. A sinister character boards the Rome Express on the trail of a valuable van Dyck painting, recently stolen from a Paris gallery. Much to his annoyance he finds the train populated with a motley assortment of passengers, including adulterous lovers, a parsimonious philanthropist, a golfing bore, a holidaying French police chief and an American movie star - all of whom are between him and the painting he desperately seeks...
