Set entirely aboard trains, on the incendiary tracks, or in the derelict wastelands of railroad yards, this sprawling, brawling epic from Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen) is an undersung tour de force. In the spirit of Jack London's best work, this rail movie immerses us in the dog-eat-dog world of sadistic conductor Shack and the freight-car-hopping, self-made King of the Hobos fighting to the death — all for the right to squat on Shack's train.

runtime: 118m format: 35mm
