Sexton Blake solves a number of murders in Cornwall
This crime film involving the fictional detective Sexton Blake was based on the short story The Terror of Tregarwith by John Silvester and has a number of railway scenes. There are two shots of GWR main line expresses; one is a ‘going-away’ shot so the loco cannot be identified but the other is hauled by a ‘King’ Class 4-6-0. Sexton Blake’s journey from Cornwall to London at the very end of the film features a stock shot of an unrebuilt LMS ‘Royal Scot’ Class 6P 4-6-0 in the Lune Gorge (!) There is also a scene earlier in the film with David Farrar hailing a taxi at London Paddington station.
