Dir: John Boulting
Starring: Ian Carmichael and Hugh Griffith
Mishaps of a lecturer at a provincial university
This comedy is an adaptation of the 1954 novel of the same name by Kingsley Amis. Ian Carmichael races to a railway station at the climax of the film. This station was Cowley, the intermediate station on the West Drayton-Uxbridge Vine Street branch, and a 4500-series 2-6-2T is seen on an arriving train. The departure shots, however, are at Bushey station on the West Coast main line, though the changeover is remarkably seamless!
