Written by Rob Hartill. This is a very logical and well-considered storyline developed from David Westheimer's WWWII thriller by Wendell Mayes and Joseph Landon The escape that ends this film, a trainborne flight across Italian lines toward Switzerland provides a vivid action climax when the train is attacked; it is a bit implausible only because of the length of time the train has to go on unstopped.
In the nineties Meg Ryan had a squeaky clean image thanks to her role as the leading lady in many rom coms like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle. But her reputation would take a huge hit when it emerged that she'd cheated on her then husband Dennis Quaid with Russell Crowe. It was claimed that Meg was "extremely infatuated" with her co-star by the time she and her ex officially announced their separation. The affair caused awkwardness amongst the cast and crew and Meg didn't even appear on the promotional press tour for fear of being asked about it.
