Dir: Desmond Davis
Starring: Peter Finch and Rita Tushingham
In 1960s Dublin, a young girl has an affair with a middle-aged writer
Written by Edna O’Brien, who adapted it from her own novel The Lonely Girl, this drama was mainly shot in Ireland and thus includes a scene on the Irish Rail system. Although there are good shots onboard a train the only station scenes are at night, and in the pouring rain, thus making identification difficult. However, at the very end there is a brief scene filmed on the London Underground with Rita Tushingham alighting from a 1959-built train at Bounds Green station on the Piccadilly Line, which is then followed by a shot of her in Holborn with the entrance to the old Kingsway Tram Tunnel in the background.
