No extras but a decent transfer once you get past the rather soft opening reel.

This shockingly little known and unfairly neglected British film from the same screenwriters as Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes offers just as much fun as the aforementioned. Finding a little gem like this one is why film buffs keep looking through rare video catalogs and scouring secondhand stores; for that golden moment you discover a gemstone of such exceptional quality it makes it worth the effort. Seven Sinners is such a film.
Edmund Lowe and Constance Cummings are delightful fun as a Pinkerton detective on holiday and a lovely insurance investigator who find themselves caught up with international saboteurs at Carnival in Nice. Harwood (Lowe) is having great fun on vacation when he discovers a dead man in the hotel room next to his. Beautiful insurance gal Caryl Fenton (Cummings) hooks up with the partying detective around this time on another matter which takes a back seat when Harwood can't get anyone to believe him when the body in question disappears!
There is some sparkling banter and wit exchanged between Harwood and the lovely Caryl as he attempts to discover who the man was. When the Paris Express is wrecked, taking dozens of lives, the fun takes a serious turn. Harwood discovers the man's body in the wreckage, suspecting all this was done to cover up one murder. The couple must use clues in a picture to track those from an organization known as The Pilgrims of Peace and soon the hunters become the hunted.
Lowe is excellent and Constance Cummings fabulous as they race along after clues and sparks fly between them. It has a charming feel found in many of Hitchcock's best during his British period. Albert De Courville's direction juggles romance and danger perfectly while the photography of M. Greenbrum gives the film a touch of class. This is a region 2 DVD so a region-free player is required if not in that region. It is available in NTSC format vhs, however. Do not be confused by the titles in parenthesis; Doomed Cargo and The Wrecker are alternate titles used for this little gem. There is a marvelous ending which every film lover will adore, making this a real favorite. A terrific find!
I am a docent at a train museum, so the three trains wrecks were very well done for the special effects of the time. For a comedy/mystery, they handled the after effects of the first crash very well. I appreciate that if you are paying attention, they play fair with the audience and you will know who the most infamous of the guilty parties is before the detectives realize it. Such a small detail.
