Dir: Victor Hanbury
Starring: Griffith Jones and Rosalyn Boulter
A couple have plans to elope but a fight with her father’s solicitor ends in murder
This little-known drama was based on an original play by Rudolph Lothar and features a shot of a ‘Southampton Express’ passing an unknown signal box at the hands of an as yet unidentified tender loco, probably of LSWR origin. There are also scenes filmed at London Waterloo station with several trains visible, including one that is arriving behind an SR ‘Lord Nelson’ Class 4-6-0, and some scenes filmed at London Victoria station, with an early shot of the ‘Night Ferry’. As this prestigious train had only started running the previous year this is probably its first known appearance of it in a feature film. With thanks to reelstreets.
