Night Train to Munich

  • Dir: Carol Reed

  • UK, 1940, English, 95mins, DCP

  • Cast: Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison, Paul von Hernried

Set in 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II, Carol Reed’s thriller is a roller coaster ride through the treacherous world of espionage and wartime intrigue. With heart-pounding chase sequences, clever disguises, and unexpected twists, the film follows a British secret agent who infiltrates Nazi Germany in a daring rescue mission to save a Czech scientist and his daughter. Under Reed’s razor-sharp direction, and featuring a witty screenplay by the same screenwriting team behind Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes (1938), this classic masterfully blends elements of comedy, adventure, and suspense, delivering both entertainment and Nazi-baiting sarcasm.

Restored by Twentieth Century Fox in collaboration with The Film Foundation.
