Dir: Peter Glenville
Starring: Laurence Olivier and Sarah Miles
An alcoholic schoolteacher is accused of indecent assault by a schoolgirl after he refuses her advances
This drama based on the 1961 James Barlow novel of the same name is rather good, and it features a scene on the Irish Rail system with Westland Row station in Dublin masquerading as both ‘Victoria’, and then ‘Euston’. There is also a very good night shot of an AEC/Park Royal 2600 Class DMU passing over roof tops. Later, there is a short sequence that is filmed onboard a train and this is very definitely a set because the same railway goods yard passes by as back-projection twice in quick succession! In this instance though, the railway wagons appear to be British in origin.
