Dir: Basil Dearden
Starring: Kenneth More and Shirley Anne Field
A man of extraordinary immunity is chosen to become the first British astronaut
This comedy features some good shots filmed at Denham station, with ex-LMS Fairburn Class 4MT 2-6-4T’s on local services and ex-GWR ‘Hall’ Class 4-6-0’s passing through on expresses. Rather intriguingly though, the final departure scene would appear to have been filmed at an entirely different station.
