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-caper 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. Although this would have been in London, it is unknown exactly where this short sequence was filmed.
