The Train

If you've read The Monuments Men or seen the film, then you may be aware that Rose Valland played a big part in preserving art and artifacts in Paris. A 1964 film, The Train, staring Burt Lancaster, was based on Ms. Valland's book, Resistence at the Museum covering the theft of many national treasures which were on board a train heading for Germany. I found a copy of The Train DVD at the library.

I don't remember ever hearing about or seeing this movie. I'll have to check it out.
