A radio singer thwarts an attempt to steal a precious idol in the form of a brass monkey

This comedy thriller seems to have frivolous usage of the definite article. Most posters use it in the film title though some depict the movie’s name simply as Brass Monkey. Either way, the film features a shot of an Ocean Liner Express boat train at Southampton Docks. No engine is visible and the clip is likely to be edited stock footage.

Dwarfed by the liner behind, this is the shot of the boat train leaving port, or more likely arriving as the carriage roof boards read ‘Ocean Liner Express Waterloo Southampton Docks ‘.
