Dir: Edward Dmytryk

A mill owner’s ambitious daughter almost ruins her husband’s political career
This drama was based on the 1945 novel of the same name by James Hilton and has sections that were filmed in and around Macclesfield. A couple of railway shots are included at the start of the film, one is a steamy shot of a 2-6-4T with an 0-6-0 tender loco running light, and one shows a local passenger train hauled by an LMS 2-6-4T passing through a cutting. There is also a brief shot of Westminster Bridge with some trams crossing.
