Dir: John Baxter
Starring: Greta Gynt and Geoffrey Hibbert

A wealthy young managing director disguises himself as a tramp in order to save a dosshouse, which is due to be condemned

This drama features an excellent, if somewhat grainy, stock shot of an LMS express taking water on Dillicar Troughs in the Lune Gorge, hauled by an ex-LNWR Claughton 4-6-0, a class virtually extinct by 1941. The carriage interior scene is a studio set with the usual back-projection.

The shot of this Claughton picking up water can also be found in Thunder in the City (1937), The Ware Case (1938), Theatre Royal (1943) and Frieda (1947).
