Dirs: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
Starring: Roger Livesey and Pamela Brown
An independent woman travels to the Hebrides to marry a wealthy old man
This classic romance features a rather surreal studio-bound train journey from London to Scotland with a dream sequence taking place. In one part, the station master’s top hat transforms into an engine chimney! Everything settles down by the time we are in Scotland though and we get one good shot of an LMS Class 5MT ‘Black Five’ 4-6-0 on a passenger train in the West Highlands. It looks to be number 5427.
