GB 1948 1hr 33mins Dir: Jeffrey Dell Starring: Jimmy Hanley and Anne Crawford
On leaving the Army, an officer awarded the VC is full of idealism to spread peace and goodwill
This comedy has some good scenes that were filmed on the Western Region. Some later external shots were filmed at Hayes and Harlington but the earlier platform scenes were filmed at Cowley, on the West Drayton – Uxbridge Vine Street branch, with a train departing from one scene hauled by an ex-GWR 6100 Class 2-6-2 ‘Large Prairie’ tank. There is also an additional shot of a steam locomotive passing through the countryside as viewed from beside a canal, but little detail can be made out.
