Description: Victor Hugo's monumental novel Les Miserables has been filmed so often that sometimes it's difficult to say one ver from another. One of the greatest and most faithful adaptations is this 240-minute French production, starring Jean Gabin as the beleaguered Jean Valjean.

Valjean's efforts to make a fresh life for himself despite the omnipresence of Javert is meticulously detailed in this film, which utilizes few episodes from the Hugo original that had hitherto never been dramatized. Originally released as a single film, Les Miserables was usually offered as a two parter outside of France.

No actress came to Hollywood in the early 30s with more publicity than Anna Sten. Goldwyn had discovered her in a German movie "Monte Carlo Madness" (1931) and had purchased her to Hollywood as Goldwyn's respond to Marlene Dietrich (she looks uncannily like her in this film.) She was going to set Tinsel City on fire but her first movie "Nana" was a large flop. After that nothing she did was right and her career petered out with cheap potboilers like this.Nadine (Anna Sten) is to become an American citizen the next day. While out with Paul (Jerome Cowan) she is approached by a "spy" - but of course no believes her. She rings Dr. Hite (Harry Davenport) and that night he is murdered!!! Ten mins in Paul is showing his real colours as he chats with Victor. Nadine is being deported, on suspicion of murder, on the exile express,along with ex-prisoner Tony Kassan (Stanley Fields, who seemed to turn up in each another 30s movie). He has a large personality and takes a shine to Nadine but he disappears from the movie almost at once. It is a shame because he would have added a bit of life to an otherwise dull film. Steve (Alan Marshall) is a reporter and tags along to receive a storyline - following Nadine as she escapes the train with Victor's help.Steve marries her so she can stay in America and then they search them-selves on the run, escaping from the "spies"!!!There are so many lows but the one highlight is Anna Sten dancing (she is trying to convince a policeman that she is "as American as Coney Island"!!!
Filmed at Universal Studios using whatever studio contract photographers happened to be accessible on the day, this film is a mess, thanks largely to the producer's decision to jazz up the script with ill-advised slapstick.Admittedly the original Mayer scenario was no nice shakes. The plot was a Hollywood stand-by that was even being used at that very moment by M-G-M's It's a Unbelievable World. In the Metro movie, however, the comedy was most adroitly integrated into the murder-and-suspense plot. Here it is not. Worse still, the slapstick is both method overplayed and incompetently directed. Only George Chandler manages to create something of his scenes. Girardot is a bore (admittedly his material is not only mighty thin but exhaustively spun out), while Catlett and Prouty adopt a related ruse by shouting and screaming to absolutely no result whateverexcept to bore audiences silly. A pity, because the murder plot seemed promising enough before it suddenly switched to lowbrow slanging matches between Prouty and Catlett, and the equivalent of pie-in-the-face, courtesy of Vince Barnett.By the time Girardot makes his belated entrance, the audience is well and truly fed up with the movie. At this stage, not even Clark Gable should rescue the script, but Alan Marshal makes tiny effort another than to hold smiling blithely away, while Miss Sten is content to pose for soft, gossamer close-up after soft, gossamer close-up. Unfortunately, that's not enough. The acting honors, such as they are, are easy stolen by Leonid Kinsky of all people!
I search films from the 1930's surprisingly unpredictable. The era produced few unbelievable films that were in many methods well ahead of their time and never seem to go out of date. I think of "Gone With The Wind" or "Mutiny On The Bounty" or even "The Sorcerer Of Oz" as examples. Then you receive "Exile Express." It simply looks and feels old - and I suspect it started to feel that method very quickly.The "exile express" is a train taking a group of deportees from San Fransisco to Ellis Island, where they'll bid farewell to America. The "exiles" we're introduced to are an apparent gangster, a likely Bolshevik, and Nadine (Anna Sten), an assistant to a scientist who has developed a sort of pesticide that can also be a horribly lethal weapon. Some foreign power wants to receive the formula, and the authorities suspect that Nadine is involved in the plot. She isn't, but she's ordered deported anyway, and the film becomes the storyline of her adventure and attempt to search a method to stay in the U.S.The trouble is that there isn't a particularly well-developed storyline here. There seem to be large gaps in the plot, one of the key twists in the film (revealing one of the foreign agents) is given far too early and the characters aren't that well developed. Even the foreign nation looking to steal the formula isn't named, although my guess, given the storyline as it is and when the film was made, is that it's Nazi Germany. (I trust at one mission Nadine told she had an "Uncle Berchtold" - which sounds German to me.) Sten's performance is cute good, and the another saving grace was the comedic performance of Walter Catlett as Gus, a newspaper reporter who's covering the exile express. Nothing much else leaped out at me as worthy of note in this, however. 3/10
