Von Ryan's Express was Frank Sinatra's biggest box office hit of the decade! The 10th hottest movie of 1965!

Von Ryan's Express, and The Train came out within a week of each other. I couldn't decide which one to go to, so I missed both and caught them on TV. The wait was worth it.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

I liked The Train way more than Von Ryan's Express.

Frankenheimer - Life - portrait.jpg

John Frankenheimer directed THE TRAIN and many other top-flite movies.....THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ, GRAND PRIX, etc...



In 1996 he directed The Island of Dr Moreau with Val Kilmer. Frankenheimer could not stand Val Kilmer. After Kilmer's last scene Frankenheimer said, " Get that bastard off my set! "


Frankenheimer said that Will Rogers never met Val Kilmer!

Yes, a lot of movies have been. I read the book. Ethan is really BAD in the book. Alan Le May also wrote THE UNFORGIVEN which was The Searchers in reverse....white men took a Comanche baby and raised it as their own.....
