Silver Streak

1976

Arthur Hiller
Director

Mild mannered fellow encounters ruthless thieves during a train ride from LA to Chicago.

Inspired teaming of Wilder and Pryor (although the latter doesn't appear until an hour in) in this amiable Hitchcock like comedy thriller with flashes of greatness and an eye-popping finale (How DID they do that?).
