A young couple become engaged, but enjoy a number of comedic adventures before their wedding day

This comedy is based on the play of the same name by Esther McCracken and was later remade as Happy Is the Bride (1958) (qv). When Margaret Lockwood returns by train from London there is a shot of an LNER K2 Class 2-6-0 arriving at an unknown station on the West Highland line. However, as she leaves the train she gets out of GWR coaches, which is a studio recreation. The film also features the well-used stock shot of an LMS ‘Royal Scot’ Class 6P 4-6-0 on an express in the Lune Gorge.

How many times have we seen this shot? At least six other times. This shot of an LMS ‘Royal Scot’ has also appeared in A Honeymoon Adventure (1931), No Limit (1935), The Black Sheep of Whitehall (1942), Next of Kin (1942), The Echo Murders (1945), and The Hangman Waits (1947).
This is somewhat rarer though, and shows what appears to be an LNER K2 arriving into a station in the West Highlands of Scotland.
Margaret Lockwood alights from her studio-bound carriage. Although the door is marked G.W.R. neither of the trains above are of GWR origin!
