Streaming Showcase: Spies, Trains, and Nazis

Jandy Hardesty

Jandy is especially drawn to classic, off-beat, and foreign film, but loves a good blockbuster action sequence, too. You can find her on Flickchart as faithx5. She also writes at The Frame, and co-hosts the occasional podcast Not at Odds at Row Three.

    I haven’t seen any of these, sadly, but trains, spies, and Nazis are three things I love in a movie. (In a movie, I emphasize!) The Lady Vanishes is already high on my list, but my fondness for Edward G. Robinson means The Stranger is climbing rapidly.

      Would you believe that I actually conceived this post as a way to push Night Train to Munich, then I figured out what else I could pair with it? My point is, you should move that one up your list as well. Look, only 92 Flickcharters have ranked it! You could be among the first 100 rankers! :) But really, yeah. The Stranger is really great. I guess I’m not surprised that Welles himself didn’t care for it, but it probably says something about my relationship to Welles that it’s one of my favorites of his.

      My relationship with Welles is not quite what one might think considering I’m posting a piece on him tomorrow, so I can understand that. I am tempted by the opportunity to be in the select few on Night Train to Munich, and I always like Rex Harrison, so I’ve added it to the queue!

    Great triple-feature! I love trains (in real life) and I enjoy watching movies about trains, spies, and Nazis. The ideal scenario would be for me to watch each of these while traveling by one of my bucket-list trains: The Shinkansen, The TGV, and The Orient Express.
