THE GHOST TRAIN:

The plot revolves around a party of passengers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated station.  The station master tries to get them to leave, citing the local legend of a ghost train that dooms all who see it to death.  It is revealed later in the plot that the train is in fact smuggling arms and the story has been concocted to frighten away strangers.  The play was very unusual for its time in using elaborate special-effects to simulate a train running through the station, such as garden-rollers running over wooden lats, thunder sheets, etc.  Ridley later wrote a sequel called The Wrecker, which ends in a rail crash using similarly spectacular special effects, but it was not a great success.  (81 mins.  Overall, in very good quality).

THE SEVENTH VICTIM:

Mary, a young woman (Kim Hunter) at Miss Highcliff's boarding school, finds out that her sister Jacqueline (Brooks), who is her only relative, has gone missing and has not paid her tuition in months.  The school officials tell her she can only stay on if she works for the school, to pay her tuition.  Mary decides to leave school and try to find her sister.  She returns to New York City, and finds that her sister had sold her cosmetics business eight months earlier.  She locates the apartment Jacqueline was renting, and finds the only things in the room are a chair and a noose hanging from the ceiling. Knowing that her sister has never feared death only makes Mary more anxious and determined to find her.  Her investigation leads her to Jacqueline's secret husband Gregory Ward (Hugh Beaumont), a failed poet (Erford Gage), and a mysterious psychiatrist, Dr. Judd (Tom Conway). A private detective (Lou Lubin) helps her in her investigation, but is killed.   Dr. Judd helps her locate the sister, who turns out to be hiding from a Satanic cult her co-workers were part of called the Palladists(71 mins. In very good quality).
