Unfunny mess
12 January 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This supposed comedy takes place on a train,the Golden Arrow of the title.Three men,a Frenchman,an,American,and an Englishman see a very glamorous blonde and we the see what happens in each mans dreams.The problem is that what happens is neither funny or interesting.The American title is The Gay Adventurer which in itself is more amusing than anything in this film
