Paris, August 1944. With the Allied army closing in, German commander and art fanatic Colonel von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) steals a vast collection of rare French paintings and loads them onto a train bound for Berlin. But when a beloved French patriot is murdered while trying to sabotage von Waldheim’s scheme, Labiche (Burt Lancaster), a stalwart member of the Resistance, vows to stop the train at any cost. Calling upon his vast arsenal of skills, Labiche unleashes a torrent of devastation anddestructionloosened rails, shattered tracks and head-on collisionsin an impassioned, suspense-filled quest for justice, retribution and revenge. Inspired by an actual event and highlighted by spectacular stuntwork and visual effects, The Train is “an edge-of-your-seat, thrilling, suspenseful and superior film” (The Motion Picture Guide).This is one of John Frankenheimer’s breathless gems–all marvelous action that never lets up. Burt Lancaster plays a French train engineer during the waning day

Studio: Tcfhe/mgm Release Date: 06/07/2011 Rating: PgMartin Scorsese took a daring turn from the mean streets that made his reputation in the early ’70s with New York, New York, his homage to the big-band era. And what an homage it is: the dazzling production design by Boris Leven continues to impress over the film’s nearly three-hour length. And there’s no denying the anthemic appeal of Kander and Ebb’s title song, belted with winning bravado by costar Liza Minnelli in a showstopping finale. But as valiantly as Minnelli and Robert De Niro try, they can’t elevate the shaky plot beyond its two-dimensional construct. It purports to be a Star Is Born-like tragedy of colliding careers, but too often it feels like inadvertently eavesdropping on a marriage counselor’s most truculent clients. (There are times you want someone–anyone–to slap Minnelli upside the head with a copy of Women Who Love Too Much.) For diehard Minnelli (or Scorsese) fans only. –Anne Hurley
