The owner of a cafe helps an American deserter involved in robbery and murder
This crime movie features a scene filmed at Denham station, with two trains featuring. One is obscured by trees as a car drives up the approach road, but the second is seen much more clearly and shows an express passing through in the hands of an ex-GWR ‘Hall’ Class 4-6-0. There is also a scene later in the movie whereby the lead characters are halted at a level crossing on there way to the docks at Millwall. This could have been filmed absolutely anywhere, yet despite being shot at night, a mixed freight crosses in the hands of ex-LMS Class 4F 0-6-0 No.44363 running tender first. There is then one final, rather artistic shot, of Park Royal Underground station silhouetted against the night sky. The film initially ran with the working title Stolen Journey and although it has an official running time of 84 minutes, most versions available today appear to be of only 64 minutes in length. Where have the missing 20 minutes gone?
