Based on the popular railroad ballad, Casey Jones stars Ralph Lewis in the title role. Actually, the ballad itself is dealt with only in the early scenes, when Casey's beloved daughter is killed in a train wreck. The bulk of the storyline is carried by Casey Jr. (Jason Robards), a humble baggage handler. Father and son work shoulder to shoulder in the climax to prevent a couple of professional "train wreckers" from causing widespread havoc. It should be noted that leading lady Anne Sheridan is no relation to popular talkie star Ann Sheridan.
