Dirs: Terence Fisher and Antony Darnborough
Starring: Noël Coward and Celia Johnson
A married psychiatrist has an affair with another woman
This thoughtful comedy drama is based on Noël Coward’s play of the same name from his cycle of ten plays Tonight at 8:30. The opening scene at London Paddington mixes real footage of the station concourse with that of a studio set, and an ex-GWR ‘Castle’ Class 4-6-0 appears as back-projection. Then, towards the end, there is a similar stage set up of ‘Waterloo’ only this time the loco on the blocks does appear to be a mock-up, based along the lines of an SR 4-6-0.
