In the 1976 film Silver Streak, book publisher George Caldwell (Gene Wilder) decides to take a train from Los Angeles to Chicago because he “just wants to be bored.” But instead he has the least boring train ride ever. He witnesses a murder, gets thrown off the train by one of the killers, gets back on the train, gets knocked off the train again, is accused of murder, steals a patrol car, meets a small-time thief (Richard Pryor), disguises himself as a flamboyant black man, gets back on the train, has a shoot-out, jumps off the train, gets arrested again, clears his name, jumps back on the train and saves all the passengers from death in the now runaway train. Whew! Oh, and he gets the girl too. Here’s betting that next time he takes a plane.
