Dir: David Eady
Starring: David Hemmings and Earl Cameron
A murder suspect on the run must depend on strangers to help clear his name
This low-budget crime thriller cleverly mixes a Boy’s Own adventure story with social realism, and features a 16-year old David Hemmings in one of his first film roles. He befriends a Trinidadian dock worker played by Earl Cameron, one of Britain’s finest black actors, on the run in this film from a crime he didn’t commit. It features some shots of arriving boat trains at London Waterloo station, one composed of carmine and cream-liveried Mk1’s, and the other of Southern stock. Both are probably taken from Newsreel footage, and no locos are seen.
