Saying that he "just wanted to be bored" (though, in reality, terrified to fly), book editor George Caldwell (Gene Wilder) eschews the airlines and travels from Los Angeles to Chicago aboard a train called "The Silver Streak." George meets and becomes romantically involved with Hilly Burns (Jill Clayburgh). After he witnesses the murder of Hilly's boss Professor Schreiner, a well known art historian, George is thrown off the train and is himself accused of the murder of undercover FBI agent Bob Sweet (Ned Beatty). Sweet had been tracking shady art dealer Roger Devereaux (Patrick McGoohan), who had killed Schreiner in order to take control of the "Rembrandt letters," which proved certain art sold by Devereaux had been forgeries. Devereaux further planned to replace Schreiner with a double, and thereby to discredit a book written by the professor that would have destroyed Devereaux's reputation. This plan requires killing Caldwell and Burns, the only witnesses to the crime. To survive and save Burns, Caldwell enlists the help of small-time criminal Grover Muldoon (Richard Pryor).
