Dir: Tony Richardson
Starring: Laurence Olivier and Joan Plowright
A failing third-rate music-hall stage performer has one last shot at fame
Based on the stage play of the same name by John Osbourne this drama features scenes filmed at the old London Liverpool Street station, but no trains are visible. There are also some night shots of Blackpool trams at the end, with two Brush single-deck cars and two illuminated trams identifiable, the latter being an old double-decker and a pseudo ‘paddle steamer’.
