A French girl exposes swindlers who faked her father’s suicide

This mystery romance has one railway scene towards the end which shows an express hauled by a GWR 4-6-0, possibly a ‘Hall’, passing through the countryside on an embankment.

The single railway shot in the film sees a couple run past a railway line as a train passes on the embankment above. It has been suggested that this is not an actual outdoor shot but more likely a back-projection screening in a studio. Either way it is still a real train.
