An American’s Glyndebourne opera visit is interspersed with a dramatised tour of the town
This short and colourful semi-documentary film, was very discreetly aimed at potential American audiences fascinated by British eccentricities. It features a railway journey at the beginning that opens with a shot of the frontage to London Victoria and ends with a brief scene filmed at Lewes, with a runby of 4 LAV EMU’s for good measure. However, the platform departure scene at Victoria disappointingly used a set.
