    As I recall, this is the movie where Jimmy Stewart's role includes a filibuster speech which leaves him almost hoarse, and quite emotionally drained.

    This is my favorite RR action movie. One of my duties in the service was picking out movies for my ship. Shortly after this came out I found it in the Pearl Harbor film library. It was quite popular with the crew, and over the years I've watched it again a few times.

    Shakespeare wrote it and it was as used in the 1985 movie Runaway Train.

    The opening scene in "Bad Day At Black Rock", opens with an SP Black Widow F-unit rolling thru the desert in the Southwest......

    In The Heat Of The Night (1967) has some great GM&O footage at the beginning and end, plus a harrowing scene at an empty roundhouse. The MoPac makes an appearance in several scenes too.

    Was always fond of the 1939 movie Union Pacific. For action though, I have to put in another vote for Emperor of the North. It is a great movie.

    For whatever reason, I like The Train slightly better than Emperor of the North but regard both as outstanding in most respects. I'm going to have to watch In the Heat of the Night again as I was 13 then and my memories of it are sketchy.

    Although it was released in 1964, The Train was shot in black and white. It adds historic reference and the Director made the most of his choice with many outstanding scenes that would have been less impressive in color I think. The night shots especially knock my socks off. I've seen it a bunch of times and still enjoy it.
