GB 1966 1hr 13mins Dir: Jeremy Summers Starring: William Lucas and Patsy Rowlands
An ex-con manages a top band in the UK, but is forced to re-enter the crime scene
This musical drama was part of the ‘pop and cop’ genre of film popular in the UK during the early 1960s and featured the Small Faces and The Chantelles, amongst others. The opening scenes are filmed in Harwich Docks, and there is an extremely rare glimpse of a Hunslet-built Class 05 0-6-0DM shunter propelling a freight train across a level crossing. Wagons are visible in the background to a number of scenes in this sequence, with some close-up shots of five-plank opens and four-wheel vans. Later, there is a shot of the concourse of London Waterloo station though no trains are visible here.
