Dir: Francis Searle
Starring: Bryan Forbes and Sandra Dorne
Two brothers working at their father’s petrol station fight over the same girl, and over the cash that their disabled father keeps in his bedroom
This drama is based on an original story entitled Nightmare by Alex Atkinson. It has some good railway scenes near the end with Bryan Forbes running across the tracks in front of a train at night. The locomotive in question is slow-moving ex-LNER B1 Class 4-6-0 No.61106 but it is not known exactly where this scene was filmed. Also making an appearance is another ex-LNER loco in the form of L1 Class 2-6-4T No. 67786 on a passenger train along with the ubiquitous stock shot of a streamlined LMS ‘Duchess’ Class 4-6-2 taken from Brief Encounter (qv). It should be noted perhaps that some recent versions of this movie have a reduced running time of only 56 minutes but all the railway footage is still shown.
