A young British schoolteacher heads to the Eastern Bloc to try to locate her husband, only to be detained by Soviet intelligence as a spy

This spoof spy movie was based on the 1969 novel Catch Me a Spy by George Marton & Tibor Méray. It features some good shots of the closed Loch Awe station on the Oban branch from Crianlarich. The station had opened with the line in July 1880 only to close in November 1965. The line had stayed open and the station reopened in May 1985. No trains are seen in the film.

Kirk Douglas and Marlène Jobert walk along the line through the closed Loch Awe station. This is looking north east towards Dalmally and the loch is clearly visible to the right.
