Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The titular mode of transportation in Train to Hollywood passes over the borders between Reality and Fantasy several times during the course of the film. The central character is a young Polish girl addicted to Hollywood movies. She spends her waking hours fantasizing about being Marilyn Monroe. In fact, she is a lowly dining-car worker on a slow- moving passenger train. Before fadeout time, wish fulfillment has fully exerted itself and the girl has become a legend in her own mind.
