Interesting, quasi-political film of depression era hobo (Lee Marvin) -
famous within hobo circles for being able to ride any train - trying to
ride one guarded by meanest guy in the world (Ernest Borgnine). He
picks up a young protégé (a very young Keith Carradine) along the
way who -- after much resistance - he accepts as the start of the
next generation of men who live by their wits and go their own way.

The acting is solid throughout. The score is a bit much at times, and
some of the writing is variable, but there are good scenes and
thoughtful ideas about the battle between 'freedom' and playing by the
rules along the way.

Aka 'The Emperor of the North Pole'.

A fantastic action drama about hobo's in hard times hitching their way across america on trains. Lee Marvin and Keith Carradine are two such hobo's who dare to ride engine #19; who's conductor is Shack, (A big tough psycho played to perfection by Ernest Borgnine) who has no problem in lethaly dissposing of any freeloaders. Great cinamatography, and a great theme song sung by Marty Robbins. Kind of a precursor to the 1985 action hit RUNNAWAY TRAIN, only set during the time of the depresion.

Best railroad movie ever. Incredible film with a superb cast depicting the depression era. Lee Marvin and Enrest Borgnine at their best.

A good movie only for the steam locomotives. It's not a great movie but Lee Marvin & Ernest Borgenine are pretty good.
