  • By Whose Hand?

    1932. USA. Directed by Ben Stoloff. Screenplay by Harry Adler. With Nat Pendleton, Barbara Weeks, Tom Dugan. A night train to San Francisco provides the closed setting for this action-packed thriller, which combines a murder mystery—with pretty much every passenger on the train having good reason to kill the despicable victim—with wild action, as an escaped convict (Pendleton) kills the engineer and sends the train careening out of control. It’s up to wisecracking reporter Ben Lyon to tame the chaos and win the girl. 63 min.
