Whilst suffering from glandular fever, an 11-year old girl discovers she can enter a house that she has drawn in her dreams

This dark fantasy was based on the 1958 novel Marianne Dreams by Catherine Storr. The original novel was the basis of a six-episode British TV series for children in the early 1970s, which was titled Escape Into Night. This film includes a good scene shot at the disused Highgate station on the old Great Northern Railway branch from Finsbury Park – Alexandra Palace, plus a short scene filmed onboard Mk.1 stock though it is not known where.

The disused building on the platform at Highgate. The station was intended to be converted for use by London Underground as part of the ‘Northern Heights’ extension of the Northern Line, a scheme abandoned after the Second World War.
