Based on the 1966 Derek Marlowe novel of the same name this spy film features a shot in East London of a Class 302 EMU passing over a viaduct. This was filmed from Barnardo Gardens in Shadwell. Also, during a film showing there is a black and white image of the frontage to London Victoria station, a rare example of a ‘film within a film’.

The only real railway scene in this film, and Laurence Harvey walks through Barnardo Gardens, Shadwell, as a Class 302 passes on the viaduct behind. (reelstreets)
