Two criminals pose as nuns to avoid capture
This successful comedy features several scenes with railways on the periphery. The most notable scene overlooks the Central Line tracks close to Wood Lane and a pair of 1962-built tube sets are passing. In an earlier scene, Eric Idle and Robbie Coltrane are talking about their future alongside the Grand Union Canal off Camley Street, London NW1, and in the distant background between two gas holders is the ‘spire’ of St Pancras station. Indeed, St Pancras makes a number of unobtrusive background appearances throughout the film as does Chiswick station, which is also seen in a couple of shots.
