In 1930s England, a shady American and an Irish girl try to improve their fortunes using less-than-honest methods
This romantic comedy crime film was one of the first films from financier Arnon Milchan, but he felt the film was so bad he had his name removed from the credits and as a result it has largely been forgotten. There is one lengthy scene at the end of this film that involves an armoured van getting stuck on a level crossing as a steam train approaches. Filmed at Nappers Crossing on the South Devon Railway (or the Dart Valley Railway as it was at the time), the train involved was hauled by GWR 4500 Class 2-6-2T No.4555. The movie was known during production as Mud, a name by which it is sometimes still referred to as.
