Starring: Norman Wisdom and Jennifer Jayne
A Scotland Yard car park attendant dreams of becoming a policeman like his father
This Norman Wisdom comedy features a memorable railway scene that is now considered a classic. The sequence sees Norman Wisdom handcuffed to a suspect on the wrong side of a set of tube train doors. Obviously, a lot of this sequence uses a mix of studio filming, sets and back projection but the platform scenes are real and used the Waterloo & City Line platforms at Bank with a Class 487 EMU. The opening sequence showing a number of railway lines within an industrial complex is believed to be the Slough Trading Estate and there are several shots of the railway viaduct in Windsor. Situated at the end of the short branch from Slough, this structure is in the background of a number of scenes and although semaphore signals are visible no trains are seen.
