One of the Late Night Movie Channels ( there are a Million of them!) showed the 1946 John Wayne/Claudet Colbert flick "No Reservations" this week.

The plot is pretty Lame but Duke plays, a Marine Traveling with his Buddy from New York to LA on the Broadway Ltd and changing in Chicago

Colbert is a Movie Star who misses the connection to the Super Chief in Chicago so has to sneak on the "Sunshine Special" without a ticket since the Trains to LA are all Full.

Wayne and his Buddy have Upper and Lower Sections, and the Duke takes pity and gives Colbert his Section since she's hiding from the Conductors, and the resulting journey is hilarious the trailer says!

"A bitter ex-husband and a put-upon momma's boy both want their respective spouse and mother dead,
but who will pull it off?


The actual train content in this is a fairly small part of the movie. (It is a very good film, though!)
