Both this film, and its follow-up, Foul Play, which Higgins got to both WRITE AND DIRECT, were big moneymakers and enabled Higgins to direct both Nine to Five and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Silver Streak was Colin Higgins' richly entertaining 1976 comedic adventure that combines comic insanity, a touch of romance and a definite touch of Hitchcockian suspense for the train ride of a lifetime, in addition to introducing a brand new comedy team who would appear in two more movies together.
