Avalanche Express

The last film of both director Mark Robson and actor Robert Shaw (1979), and not the best of either, though the distinctive, talented Abraham Polonsky is credited with the script, an adaptation of a Colin Forbes novel. A rather lackluster spy thriller set largely on a train running from Milan to Rotterdam, it also features Lee Marvin, Linda Evans, Maximilian Schell, Joe Namath, Mike Connors, and Horst Buchholz. Because Shaw died during shooting, most of his lines have apparently been dubbed. (JR)
