Dir: Maurice Elvey
Starring: Leslie Banks and Kay Walsh
British naval officers at the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth must defeat an espionage ring
This drama was made shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, something explored in the themes of the film, and it was shot in the revolutionary Dufaycolor, the first British movie of its kind. As a result, there are a number of excellent colour shots of both Dartmouth and Churston stations throughout the film. There is a shot of a GWR express passing along the Dart Estuary as seen from the opposite bank, and a good shot of a GWR ‘Castle’ Class 4-6-0 arriving into Churston. In this scene, a branch train for Brixham is standing in the bay but the loco is obscured by platform paraphernalia.
