Dir: Wolf Rilla
Starring: Dennis Price and Rona Anderson
Believing that she is innocent, a man works against the clock to free his cousin who has been sentenced to death by hanging
This pretty good crime film is based on the 1949 novel Whispering Woman by Gerald Verner. It features a number of stock shots that are used to depict train journeys. The first is a going away shot of an ECML express approaching the still single bore Hadley Wood (South?) Tunnel at the hands of an ex-LNER A3 Class 4-6-2, whilst the other two feature an express train at night. Despite the steam locomotive being virtually indistinguishable in this instance, the distinctive outline shows it to be a streamlined Bullied pacific. The second of these night shots has been edited to show the rear of the train passing out of shot but it maybe the same one.
