PSYCHE 59

GB
1964
1hr 34mins
Dir: Alexander Singer
Starring: Curt Jürgens and Patricia Neal

After falling downstairs and losing her sight, a woman suspects that a mentally traumatic experience prior to the fall caused her accident

This psychological drama is based on the 1963 novel Psyche ’59 by Françoise des Ligneris. It features some scenes filmed at London Charing Cross station and amongst all the Southern Region 4 SUB EMU’s that are present, there are some good shots of ‘Hastings’ DEMU’s including Class 6B set No.1037. However, the train compartment is clearly a set, given away by the slightly grainy ‘back-projection’ of a BR EMU (a 4 CIG or something similar) through the window at a different station!
