A lowly Yorkshire girl marries the local doctor and inherits a fortune

This comedy is an early Technicolor film and as a result there is an excellent and rare colour shot of a passing LNER express hauled by B17 ‘Footballer’ Class 4-6-0 No.2867 Bradford in apple green livery. This was purportedly filmed near Denham.

Here is a genuine LNER express just before the outbreak of the Second World War. This excellent footage shows B17 ‘Footballer’ No.2867 Bradford passing the camera at speed. The driver is looking out of his cab side window and the whistle is blowing a constant shrill. One just wonders whether he knew the camera was here and he suitably ‘made a show of things’ whilst passing.
