Dir: Robert Baker
Starring: Patrick Holt and Sandra Dorne
A detective poses as an escaped convict in order to catch a gang of warehouse robbers
This thriller includes a scene where a couple of criminals escape from a speeding express train. This studio-bound sequence features a ‘day-for-night’ shot of an express on an embankment hauled by an ex-GWR 4-6-0 and another brief glimpse of a passenger train as the criminals make their escape. In this instance though, the train has morphed into one of LNER teak carriages hauled by a tank locomotive!
