Synopsis
King Faraday, on the trail of a killer, rides the Orient Express, where he meets a movie starlet and a camera-happy tourist. Though two attempts are made on his life, he finds no clues as to the identity of the killer. Only when the photographer overplays his hand does Faraday realize he is behind the attacks and using his camera to transport pictures of a more sensitive nature than the candids he has been taking. Faraday puts a permanent end to the photographer in a fight atop the train.
