Hue and Cry (film) - Wikipedia

1hr 22mins
Dir: Charles Crichton
Starring: Harry Fowler and Jack Warner

A gang of street boys foil a master crook who sends commands for robberies by cunningly altering a comic strip’s wording each week

This film is generally considered to be the first of the “Ealing comedies”, although it is better characterised as a thriller for children. The final sequences have some excellent shots overlooking Cannon Street railway bridge and station with various traction on show. Identifiable locos are a Bulleid pacific in Southern ‘Sunshine’ livery, a couple of V Class ‘Schools’ 4-4-0’s and what could be an H Class 0-4-4T on pilot duties. A couple of vintage pre-war EMUs join in for good measure. In an earlier scene filmed in Patmore Street, Battersea, as Harry Fowler fights with another child, a ‘King Arthur’ or similar size 4-6-0 can be seen in the background on the lines out of Waterloo being overtaken by an EMU. A number of trams are also visible in the final sequences, crossing Southwark Bridge.

This is Patmore Street, Battersea, and the black mass in the centre distance immediately above the fighting children is a Southern Railway steam loco working a service out of Waterloo

In this view from the shattered shell of a bombed out building, Cannon Street railway bridge is host to some pre-war EMU’s and a couple of steam locomotives. To the left of Harry Fowler is what looks to be an H Class 0-4-4T whilst behind him is another ‘Schools’ Class 4-4-0. The distant tower on the very far left belongs to Southwark Cathedral.
