Description by OLDIES.com:

Ruthless spies kill an American scientist in a failed attempt to steal the secret formula for a deadly poison. The only other person with access to the process is the chemist's lab assistant, Nadine Nicolas, an immigrant with dreams of becoming a U.S. citizen. Falsely accused of being part of the spy ring, Nadine is imprisoned and misses her last chance to take her citizenship test. Though finally acquitted in a very public trial, she is immediately listed for deportation and put on a train bound for Ellis Island. With the enemy spies still after the formula, the Exile Express is fast becoming a very dangerous ride.

Exile Express is notable for showcasing one of the few Hollywood roles of Anna Sten, a veteran European actress "discovered" by Sam Goldwyn and rushed to the States to be the next Garbo or Dietrich, both of whom she resembles. Alan Marshal, suitably suave as Sten's love interest, is perhaps most notoriously known for literally dying onstage in 1961 while performing with Mae West's oft-banned play, "Sextet." Several consummate comic actors lighten Exile Express with great comedic performances.

Product Description:

Grand National Pictures went out with a bang with this blend of suspense and romantic comedy, the last film they made. Beautiful, Ukranian-born actress Anna Sten--who was wife to the film's producer, Eugene Frenke--stars as Nadine Nikolas, a young European with hopes of becoming an American citizen. Her aspirations appear to be dashed when she becomes the chief suspect in a murder, but as she prepares to be deported, reporter Steve Reynolds (Alan Marshall) investigates his hunch that a group of international spies was really behind the murder. Love blooms as Steve gets closer to the dangerous truth, and Sten delivers the film's highlight by dancing an infectious, adorable jitterbug.

Really disappointing Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- March, 12, 2010

Half way through the movie thay must have changed writers. What started out as an interesting spy film attemtps to become a romantic comedy, and then, towards the end, reverts to something like the original idea. Anna Sten was an attractive young lady but she should have been given something better to work with. (And what happened to the trial that was never shown and where did the gangster being deported disappear to?)
