The Paris Express Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A [[Performer~P198871~Georges Simenon~georgessimenon]] novel was the source for the Anglo-American The Man Who Watched Trains Go By. [[Performer~P58546~Claude Rains~clauderains]] stars as Kees Popinga, chief clerk for a Dutch trading company. Scrupulously honest, Popinga goes off the deep end when he discovers that his employer has been cooking the books to support a mistress. Upon learning that his boss intends to abscond from Brussels to Paris with company funds, Popinga prevents this from happening by stealing the money himself. Through a series of wild coincidences, he winds up entangled with the very woman ([[Performer~P71374~Marta Toren~märtatorén]]) who'd caused his boss' downfall. The Man Who Watched Trains Go By was released in the U.S. as Paris Express. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
