Union Station 1950 William Holden Crime Drama
Stars: William Holden, Nancy Olson, Barry Fitzgerald
Union Station Story Line. Railway police man William Calhoun is having a fairly routine day at work when Joyce Willecombe, an apprehensive passenger, approaches him. Joyce believes that two travelers aboard her train may have been up to no good. It turns out that Joyce is the secretary to a rich man called Henry Murchison. Mr Murchinson’s blind daughter Lorna has been kidnapped and held for ransom and the railway station where Calhoun works has been chosen as the location for the ransom pay-off. Calhoun and fellow cop Inspector Donnelly race against time to find the kidnappers and bring them to heel.
Pacy and exciting, surprisingly violent and very well-acted, Union Station is 80 minutes of terrific entertainment. Sydney Boehm’s script is filled with incident and Rudolph Mate directs with a sense of urgency and a real talent for building suspense.
While the plot is great and the characters are entertaining, the real star of the movie is the historical Union Station. The movie moves throughout portions of the building never seen before by the general public and reveals the enormous scope of Union Station. Union Station itself compares in size and beauty to any other in the country.This movie was shot during the last hey-days of the railroad passenger trains.
