Stop Train 349 (German: Verspätung in Marienborn, French: Le train de Berlin est arrêté, Italian: Un treno è fermo a Berlino), is a 1963 internationally co-produced drama film directed by Rolf Hädrich. Based on a true story, an East German's escape sparks an international crisis during the Cold War. The refugee slips aboard an American military duty train leaving Berlin, deep inside East Germany. The Russian and East German authorities stop the train and demand that the "criminal" be handed over to them. Soon, officials in Washington and Moscow are involved to negotiate this tense international crisis.
