This crime drama was one of a group of British film noir that were produced around this time, most of which were admirable, and The Small Voice was no different. It received a BAFTA nomination for best British film in 1949, and was based on the eponymous 1940 Robert Westerby novel. Although there are some station scenes that clearly use a set, the film does seem to have a number of sequences that were filmed at a real station. Called ‘Llanbach’ in the film, the identity of this ‘station’ is not yet known, assuming of course that it isn’t a set. A train arrives here hauled by a tank locomotive and there is one additional shot of an express passing at dusk.
