Dir: Ronald Neame
Starring: Hugh Williams and Rosalie Crutchley
A man wrongly accused of murdering an ex-girlfriend must rely on his wife to find the real killer
This really decent crime drama was adapted from Winston Graham’s 1947 novel of the same name and features a couple of reversed stock shots from Brief Encounter (qv), with expresses hauled by an unrebuilt LMS ‘Royal Scot’ 4-6-0 and a streamlined ‘Duchess’ 4-6-2. Later, there is an additional shot of an LNER A4 Class 4-6-2 on an express but the station scenes at Edinburgh, York and London King’s Cross are all studio sets.
