From Peter Hyams, director of Busting and Running Scared, comes the 1990 action-filled thriller Narrow Margin, a suspenseful remake of the classic 1952 film noir.

Gene Hackman (Mississippi Burning) stars as an L.A. District Attorney attempting to take an unwilling murder witness (Anne Archer, Fatal Attraction) back to the United States to testify against a top-level mob boss. Frantically attempting to escape two deadly hitmen sent to silence her, they board a Vancouver-bound train only to find the killers are onboard with them. For the next 20 hours, as the train hurls through the beautiful but isolated Canadian wilderness, a deadly game of cat and mouse begins…

Shot by Hyams, the film also features James B. Sikking (The Pelican Brief), J.T. Walsh (Needful Things) and M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple).
