Exile Express is a 1939 American drama film directed by Otis Garrett and starring Anna Sten, Alan Marshal and Jerome Cowan.


After being wrongly implicated in the murder of her scientist boss by foreign agents, a young immigrant woman is placed on board an "exile express" from California to New York City where she is to be deported from Ellis Island. With the help of a journalist who has fallen in love with her, she jumps the train and sets out to prove her innocence.


It was the first film Sten had made in the United States since leaving her contract with Samuel Goldwyn after The Wedding Night (1935). Since then Sten had appeared in a single film A Woman Alone (1936) in Britain. Exile Express was made by the small Grand National Pictures, which went out of business the same year after producing several large-budgeted films which didn't recoup their costs.
