The Kansas Pacific versus the Southern Saboteurs
A railroad is being built from one end of Kansas to the other end, and it will take a tough man to get it done. The actor that I want to introduce you to today was a tough-as-nails eighteen-year-old when World War Two began. The actor wasn’t able to fight in the war, but became a welder in a shipyard, sweating over a hot welding torch for long hours in the belly of the ships that would help win the war. If you guess that this was the tough star of the movie, Sterling Hayden, you would be wrong.
Eighteen-year-old Eve Miller welded ships for the war effort, and after the war she worked on stage as a showgirl. By 1948, three years after the war ended, she got a movie contract, and with the help of actor/director/producer Ida Lupino, she got the leading lady role opposite Kirk Douglas in The Big Trees —». A year after appearing in this adventure, at the age of thirty-one, Eve fell deeply in love with a bit-part actor, but when he refused to marry her until he became more financially prepared, she grabbed a kitchen knife and plunged it deep into her belly.
She was discovered bleeding to death on her kitchen floor with love letters from her boyfriend scattered around her. Four hours of intense surgery saved her life, and after she recovered, she got parts in a couple more movies before moving to television shows. Her acting career lasted from 1948 until 1961. Then, nine days after her fiftieth birthday, in August of 1973, she successfully committed suicide. Sadly, not every story has a happy ending.
In this railroad adventure, she is the daughter of the track boss, and the love interest of the Army Captain who is sent to help complete the rail line. A gang of men is doing all they can to sabotage the railroad and the undercover Army Captain must discover who they are and stop them from destroying the rail line as soon as it is built. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
