An American salesman helps a duke promote a non-existent metal
There is one railway scene in this drama that features a shot of a passing LMS express on water troughs. The footage is very grainy and it is edited over another frame making it difficult to positively identify the locomotive. However, it would appear to be an ex-LNWR 4-6-0, probably the stock shot of a ‘Claughton’ on Dillicar Troughs. The scene that follows with Edward G Robinson and the crew on the footplate of an express engine uses a very detailed and quite effective studio mock-up of a GWR tender loco cab with back projection.
