Description by

Sentenced to death for a fatal shooting, Jim Collins and a police escort board the train that will take him to the death house. Also on board is Jim's estranged wife Molly, whose supposed dalliances with the murdered man led to the deadly incident. With her husband's execution fast approaching, the completely innocent Molly is desperate to reconcile, but Jim refuses to see her. Tony Richards, the very newspaperman whose slanderous writing during the trial convinced Jim of his wife's infidelity, is also a passenger on the train. Molly crosses paths with the reporter, and she convinces him that his assumptions about her were all wrong. Tony now wants to set things right, and he decides to help Jim and Molly in a most extraordinary way.

Mary Brian began her career as Wendy in 1924's silent screen version of Peter Pan. In her very first sound role, she appeared opposite Gary Cooper in the 1929 production of The Virginian. She spent the remainder of the decade with Paramount, and stayed afloat throughout the 1930s, playing a variety of roles opposite such stars as W.C. Fields and Henry Fonda.

Mary Brian is Appealing Movie Lover: from BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AU -- August, 15, 2014

"One Year Later" shows that with solid stars
and inspired direction, poverty row movies
could be memorable. This had Mary Brian
and Don Dillaway on the honeymoon express
but just one year later a tearful Brian is at the
station alone!! Russell Hopton is a standout
as the consumptive reporter.

Nice Quick Pacing Movie Lover: from Walnut Creek, CA US -- January, 25, 2009

Interesting and in some cases unique direction by a long-time silent movie director; good pre-Code story. Reasonably tight editing, and the plot clicks right along.

Fine story Movie Lover: from Pittsburgh, PA US -- November, 12, 2007

Another delightful surprise in the low-budget genre of the early 1930's - a movie with a story line which, despite its far-fetchedness, somehow works and makes for a compelling drama.

A Mislaid Gem Movie Lover: from SAN DIEGO, CA US -- August, 19, 2007

Although the beginning of this film wasn't promising, it proved to be well worth watching.

The central character is Molly. Her husband Jim has been sentenced to death, and is being taken by train to the prison at which he is to be electrocuted. Molly has got a berth on the train in the hope that she might reconcile with him, might grab what snatches of time remain for them. But Jim refuses to see her; indeed, he had killed the man in whose apartment he'd found her.

Riding to his own death is Tony, headed to a sanatorium. Tony is a reporter who knows something of the story of Molly and Jim, who learns more from Molly, and who determines to do what he might for Molly.

This isn't a murder mystery; the ending cannot see Jim exonerated. Nonetheless, the resolution offers Molly and Jim a grim salvation.
