Plot Synopsis:

A thriller in the Hitchcock tradition, NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH Ping-Pongs its characters around pre-WW II Europe as spy matches ├╝berspy in an extremely entertaining battle of wits. Starring Rex Harrison as British agent Gus Bennett, the film opens with the flight of an important Czech scientist, Axel Bomasch (James Harcourt), and the detention of his daughter, Anna (Margaret Lockwood), in a concentration camp. When the pair are kidnapped and taken to Germany, Bennett infiltrates the ranks of the German high command in a last-ditch effort to save them.
