A businessman is framed for a murder he didn’t commit
This neat little crime thriller features a journey that supposedly involves the ‘Hook Continental’. There are scenes at both London Liverpool Street and Harwich Parkeston Quay stations with good shots of carmine and cream liveried coaching stock but no locomotives. However, a shot of the train journey in progress is represented by a stock shot of an unrebuilt LMS ‘Royal Scot’ Class 4-6-0 from Brief Encounter (qv), passing through Watford Junction on an express.
