Film Quizzes: Films set on Trains

After posting Closely Watched Trains by BeetleyPete for my Foreign Favourites series, I thought why not do a themed quiz on films fully or predominantly set on trains. This one may be trickier than usual, as the films stretch back to the 1930s and cover quite a few different genres. Do you have a favourite among the six films below? Any others you re fond of that you think could have been included?

The Lady Vanishes (1938) (1930s)

Film Quizzes - Films set on Trains Film 2 (1950s)

Film Quizzes - Films set on Trains Film 3 (1970s)

Film Quizzes - Films set on Trains Film 4 (1980s)

Film Quizzes - Films set on Trains Film 5 (1990s)

Film Quizzes - Films set on Trains Film 6 (2000s)

Answers below

1. The Lady Vanishes  (1938)

2. Strangers on a Train  (1951)

3. Murder on the Orient Express  (1974)

4. Throw Momma from the Train  (1987)

5. Before Sunrise  (1995)

6. The Taking of Pelham 123  (2009)

  1. I got one, Taking of Pelham 123. That’s it – embarrassing!

    Other films on trains? I love Midnight Meat Train. Such an odd film on so many levels. Snowpiercer? I don’t know that many actually, but it’s an interesting category of films for sure.

  2. Guessed all, except for Throw Momma from the Train & The Taking of Pelham 123 (nor have I seen them).
    My favourites – the two Hitchcock’s (including his take on Highsmith), and the Lumet’s take on Christie.
    I haven’t seen Before Sunrise, only the sequel, Before Sunset (04′).
