Product Description

Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise star in this hilarious spoof comedy thriller. The two entertainers become embroiled in a 1940's murder mystery when they take Eric's neice under their wing, after she arrives at the stage door at the end of one of their shows. Lysette Anthony plays the leading lady as Eric Morecambe's niece, in this funny and affectionate send-up of some of the great thriller writers, from Edgar Wallace and Raymond Chandler to Agatha Christie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great treat 21 Jan 2013

I don't see why this film gets such negative press. The acting in it is actually quite good and there are fantastic comic moments and the writing and plot are both top notch as is the timing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Gem From M&W 25 Feb 2006
By Kindle Customer VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was the last piece of work from Morecambe and Wise and was originally broadcast after Eric Morecambe's death in 1984. It's largely been forgotten which is a great shame as it has some wonderful moments and there's a great warmth to the humour that you don't see very often these days. It's not perfect but it's essential for any M&W fan to see.

2.0 out of 5 stars Morecambe And Wise - Night Train To Murder 12 Oct 2010
By Tazdog
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy the lighthearted entertainment that is Morecambe and Wise
But....this was not in my view as good as it should have been.
The 'plot' is a well tested formula.
Enjoyable up to a point, memorable sadly no.
I ended up watching it because i bought it!
Having said that there are some funny moments typical of Morecambe and Wise
the card game on the train was a funny sketch, but that was it really it....

2.0 out of 5 stars The Last Hurrah!,but not good and a shame too!. 20 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tis a shame ERICs last performance is so dire.Their films of the 60s were so much better,but this was made in 84 just before Eric passed away and is very boring,its a bit like,one of Erns plays"WOT HE WROTE!",but not very well.One gag did make me laugh which concerned"quick make a wish!",but sadly,Eric bowed out on this sadly.But hey remember them both at their peak and hey day and just give this TV movie a watch as nostalgia.very sad really.Plus its on the Prism label which is cheap and nasty which adds insult to injury too.But I miss Eric,so ill end it there.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 of a kind 19 Aug 2013
By Chris W
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
you either love em of hate em. For me they go with laurel & hardy, hale & pace, a bit like bread & butter you cant really have one without the other. I got this version as I had a lot of the original shows on VHS which were very poor quality. This now almost completes my collection of their shows. the one I am really waiting to come on DVD is their live stage show, which unfortunately is now a rarity on VHF only.

3.0 out of 5 stars I still love them. 28 Jun 2013
By Barney
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Eric and Ernie knew this was a poor effort and were never happy with it apparently - not their fault though - and if you love M&W as I do then there are enough classic moments to make it a worthwhile purchase and these help you to overlook the rest of the plot.

Not one of their best films. Bad timing and poor production made this film almost unwatchable. But, you have to admire their perseverance in this. There are some fuuny moments too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...
I have always enjoyed the Morecambe and Wise's comedy shows and films and so out of curiosity I bought this little known film, but it is clear to me now why it is very rarely seen. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Morecambe and Wise
Bought as a birthday present for my father-in-law who is in his late eighties, who loves Morecambe and Wise, and YES he LOVED IT!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's M&W
The film itself is poor, the DVD not very good quality. But it's Morecambe and Wise and I'd never seen it. Came well within the delivery time and was well packaged.
