GB 1952 1hr 19mins Dir: John Eldridge Starring: Kenneth More and Jean Lodge
A couple on a boating holiday in the west country find themselves smuggling brandy into Britain
The opening scenes of this decent comedy were shot at London Paddington station, though no trains are visible. These scenes are followed by a rare shot of the frontage and approach road to Maiden Newton station in Dorset, and we remain in the county for the only shot of a train in the film. Quite a while later in the movie, an unrebuilt Bulleid ‘Battle of Britain’ Class 4-6-2 on an express passes over Woodsford No.38 level crossing, between Moreton and Dorchester South stations.
