GB 1945 1hr 20mins Dir: Montgomery Tully Starring: William Hartnell and Dinah Sheridan
Having served a fifteen year prison sentance for murder, an elderly man plans revenge on the man he is supposed to have killed
This thriller was a successful film in its time, and it was shown at the British Film Institute on the big screen in June 2010 to great success, selling out the auditorium. Based on a story called Query by ‘Seamark’, it is a worthy spectacle with a strong cast. The film features a shot of William Hartnell boarding a train at Bricket Wood station in Hertfordshire, said in the story to be ‘somewhere close to Dartmoor’. We then have a shot of an express passing in the hands of an LMS ‘Black Five’ 4-6-0, and a shot of the Praed Street ramp at Paddington station.
