GB 1963 1hr 33mins Dir: Michael Winner Starring: Alfred Lynch and Kathleen Breck
A man down on his luck is recruited into crime by a local conman
This crime film was based on the Laura del Rivo play The Furnished Room and was set in West London, taking its title from the W11 postcode (Notting Hill). There are some good railway scenes in the film, some of which take place at London Paddington station, but no trains are seen. Paddington station, incidentally, is in postcode W2. Meanwhile, there is a brief shot of Plymouth station with a Class 118 DMU in the background showing headcode 2C74, and a later scene filmed at Bournemouth Central station with Southern Region coaching stock in the platform. The Bournemouth scenes include a rare scene that was filmed inside a Bulleid coach. The final railway scenes use Waterloo station, though as it was filmed at night very little can actually be recognised.
