Dir: Cyril Frankel
Starring: Estelle Winwood and Stanley Holloway

Three women who grow dissatisfied with their lives in a retirement home decide to search for fresh enjoyment and adventure

This delightfully charming comedy is a joy to behold and features three wonderful actresses in Sybil Thorndike, Kathleen Harrison and Estelle Winwood. It also features one 1930s stock shot of a GWR express hauled by a ‘King’ Class 4-6-0 which appears right at the beginning of the film, and had originally appeared in South Riding (qv).

A ‘King’ Class 4-6-0 passes the camera in close up. This shot first appeared in the 1938 film South Riding.
The three women view the passing express from behind a hedge, then follow the railway line to ‘wherever’. This lineside view is of course a set.
