This farce is a screen adaptation of the original 1926 Aldwych farce of the same title by Ben Travers, who in turn had based it on his own novel of 1923. Rookery Nook was very successful at the box office, becoming the most popular British movie of 1930. The film features a very rare shot of Smallford for Colney Heath station on the Hatfield-St Albans branch, a route which closed throughout to passengers on 1st October 1951. The scene features a train of Gresley teak corridor coaches arriving behind LNER N7/2 Class 0-6-2T No.2641, only two years old at the time.
