GB 1938 1hr 19mins Dir: Robert Stevenson Starring: Clive Brook and Jane Baxter
A financier is accused of murder after his brother-in-law is found dead in his garden pond
This melodrama is an adaptation of the 1915 play of the same name by George Pleydell Bancroft, which had previously been made into two silent films, once in 1917, and then again in 1928. There are some brief scenes filmed at London Victoria, and then a couple of random shots that show a Southern Railway ‘Continental Express’ train departing, possibly in this case from Waterloo! However, this is then followed by one very good stock shot of a former LNWR ‘Claughton’ taking water on Dillicar Troughs.
