Dir: Basil Dearden
Starring: John Mills and Dirk Bogarde
In 1941, two Irish brothers working for the IRA come against their local leader’s ruthless methods
Early into this drama there is a suspenseful scene on the London Underground in which a bomb is timed to go off. This was shot on the Aldwych line platform at Holborn station with 1923 Standard stock in evidence. To add to the suspense there is a close up shot of the station clock counting down with the emphasis placed on its second hand. This is a studio creation though as London Transport clocks on the Underground did not feature second hands. In the film, Holborn station masqueraded as the fictional Camden Road.
