GB 1970 1hr 45mins Dirs: Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell Starring: James Fox and Mick Jagger
A gangster on the run moves in with a rock star
This crime drama includes a couple of scenes with a railway background. James Fox makes a phone call outside the entrance to Wandsworth Town station and there is another scene filmed inside the old buffet at Kensington Olympia, at the time it was still a major motorail hub. There is also a shot inside London Paddington station from the overbridge, and a Met-Camm ‘Blue Pullman’ DMU, a pair of Class 117 DMU’s and rakes of BR Mk.1 stock are visible. It should be noted, however, that this shot of Paddington is preceded by a highly unusual aerial view of the station.
