Dir: Basil Dearden
Starring: Richard Attenborough and David Hemmings
A trio of confidence tricksters attempt to swindle an African state into buying crates full of scrap metal instead of anti-tank guns
This enjoyable comedy was adapted from the 1968 novel of the same name by Len Deighton and features a scene at a goods yard with BR mineral wagons being loaded and a Class 08 diesel shunter (or similar) moving about in the background. It has been suggested that is the rail-connected scrap metal yard to the east of White City Central Line Underground station.
