Dir: Maurice Elvey
Starring: Dominic Roche and Olive Sloane

After six years away, a soldier returns home expecting a warm welcome only to discover that his wife has taken on a spiv lodger in his absence

The screenplay for this weak comedy was adapted from the play My Wife’s Lodger by Dominic Roche, who took the lead role in the film. If it was not for the fabulous performance from Olive Sloane the whole spectacle would be worth forgetting, yet there are some shots at the beginning that were filmed at Ealing Broadway station, one of a train departing, and a very good one of a train arriving behind ex-GWR 6100 Class 2-6-2T No.6153. The departure scene is shown twice, either side of the arrival suggesting that it could be the same train. However, closer inspection of the coaching stock in these scenes reveals it to be different. The lengthy scene filmed onboard used a studio set.

This is the Up Main platform 2 at Ealing Broadway looking east towards Acton and Paddington. The train departing looks to have a 2-6-2T on the front, and this shot appears twice in the film.
This very good shot of a train arriving follows a little later. Ealing Broadway platform 2 looking west towards West Ealing and Hanwell. The locomotive is ex-GWR 2-6-2T No.6153.
