You forgot a great train sequence: the end of From Russia with Love -- James Bond (back before the series became a comic book), a train, a beautiful exotic woman, spies, what's not to love.

Luckily I grew up in Berlin, and any time my family took a vacation we went by train. There's nothing like going through East Germany at night (complete with jack-booted soldiers coming through and demanding, "Papers, please"), arriving a giant, gothic 19th Century station, and then taking a day-long ride down to Bavaria. Amtrak just can't compare.


European train travel is the best I hear...I'm still in my American Boxcar Willie phase but I'll be sure to check that out.

And nice call on "From Russia With Love..."

some great scenes on a train in Horror Express..how can you beat Telly Savalas roaming the cars with whited out eyes or the zombified Knights Templar happily munching on horrified train passengers at the end of Tombs Of The Blind Dead?
Glad you enjoyed Chicago but ill take that 95 degress any day over the weather here


Let's not forget A HARD DAY'S NIGHT. The sexiness factor can be determined by picking your favorite Beatle and taking it from there.

THE TRAIN, by the way, happens to be my favorite movie. Great write up!
