An unsophisticated and impressionable young girl finds herself in trouble after winning a beauty pageant
This brilliant comedy film features a number of railway scenes. Firstly, there is a shot of a deserted main line station, which although unidentified could be Preston. There is then a later scene filmed at a station masquerading as the fictional ‘Westbourne’, with a train arriving behind ex-Southern Railway L1 Class 4-4-0 No.31754. The station used for this sequence was Folkestone West. Finally, there is a departure scene at London Marylebone, and although the rear of a tank loco is only just about visible, there are excellent shots of Gresley coaches.
