GB 1971 1hr 28mins Dir: Stephen Frears Starring: Albert Finney and Billie Whitelaw
An amateur private detective becomes embroiled in a drug-related murder
This crime drama features the full hat-trick of Liverpool railway termini, in one film! Lime Street station features most prominently, with a train of blue & grey-liveried Mk1 and Mk2 coaching stock departing in one shot. In the background to this scene parcels vans are present, and they include an old LNER Gresley brake. There then follows a brief scene onboard the train as it passes over the Runcorn Bridge. Later shots were taken at both Central and Exchange stations, in their final years of operation, but no trains feature. Finally, there are scenes filmed on the Piccadilly Line of the London Underground at both Aldwych and Russell Square stations with 1959-built tube stock.
