GB 1953 1hr 16mins Dir: John Lee Thompson Starring: Kenneth More and Hy Hazell
A small boy thinks he killed his friend only to then be menaced by a real murderer
This very fine, taught little thriller, features some suspenseful final scenes filmed on the Central Line of the London Underground. Although several cross-passages and the ‘bombed’ station were a studio set, the bulk was filmed at Queensway station with 1923 ‘Standard’ stock present. The station masquerades as the closed ‘Weston Road’, and has been made to look the part of an abandoned one. The location of both the lift shaft and the emergency stairs is not known, but they were not filmed at Queensway. The scene with the signal cabin is believed to have used Marble Arch station. There are also several shots of the street level frontage to Queensway.
