Movie Summary

Director:
Arthur Hiller
Released:
1976
Rating:
PG

Silver Streak is a hysterical and elegant comedy in the vein of North by Northwest from Arthur Hiller, director of Love Story. George Caldwell (Gene Wilder, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, See No Evil, Hear No Evil) is a Los Angeles How To Do It Books editor, who boards the classy conveyance the Silver Streak at Union Station and doesn't know the moment he steps foot on it that his destination is intrigue and adventure! Almost immediately, he meets a gregarious vitamin salesman named Bob Sweet (Ned Beatty, Deliverance, Superman, Network) and his shipboard romance subject, Hilly (Jill Clayburgh). Attraction sparks between the two, but things get complicated when George witnesses the murder of Hilly's professor boss and soon finds himself embroiled in a web of mystery involving secret sought after letters and a major metropolitan art scandal in the making perpetrated by the suavely sinister Roger Devereau (Patrick McGoohan, Braveheart, The Prisoner).
