I watched a movie

The other day I watched an old film, The Train. It was released in 1964, shot in black and white, and stars Burt Lancaster and Paul Scofield. The film takes place in France toward the end of World War II. It centers around the effort of a German colonel, played by Scofield, to transport hundreds of French paintings, by great artists like Picasso, Renoir, Gaugin and Matisse, to Germany to be sold for the war effort.
