Dir: Basil Dearden
Starring: Jean Simmons and David Farrar

A young bride is widowed and then marries another man only to be blackmailed by her first husband who isn’t dead

This drama features two shots of expresses hauled by ex-LMS ‘Royal Scots’. One is hauled by a rebuilt example and the other is of 46100 Royal Scot itself, seen on Bushey troughs carrying ‘THE ROYAL SCOT’ cast headboard. Both shots are from the stock footage archives with the latter appearing in a good number of films over the years. There is also an opening scene that was thought to have been filmed at Piccadilly Circus on the London Underground featuring 1923 ‘standard stock’.
