Night Train to Munich
Charters and Caldicott are the leading characters in Carol Reed's Night Train to Munich . It twists and turns to create a cloak-and-dagger delight. The movie, written by Sidney Gilliat and Frank Launder (of The Lady Vanishes fame), combines comedy, romance, and thrills. Night Train to Munich takes viewers on a World War II journey across Europe, as Nazis pursue a Czech scientist and his daughter (Margaret Lockwood),. Charters and Caldicott, holidaying in Germany as war breaks, assist the debonair British undercover agent, Dicky Randall, as he rescues the scientist and his daughter from the clutches of their German captors. It is fast moving, witty and has some of the best comedy characters written into a thrilling suspense movie.
