An awkward British bank clerk’s girlfriend wants to wait until they are married
This big-screen version of the TV sit-com about the ups-and-downs of a young courting couple’s relationship is now largely forgotten, but is delightfully charming and easy-going. It features a fairly lengthy scene of football supporters at a railway station about to board a train for an away fixture. Although the film was largely shot in Manchester the station that features is Windsor and Eton Central, though no trains are visible. It should be noted that several sources have stated the ‘old’ Manchester Victoria was used for this scene and this was probably born about by the glimpse of a timetable for departing trains from Manchester Victoria seen as a prop on a wall in one shot.
