Dir: Bryan Forbes
Starring: Alan Bates and Hayley Mills
After taking refuge on a farm, a murderer on the run is mistaken by three children as the Second Coming of Christ
There is one scene in this classic drama which shows Hayley Mills running onto a railway track and into a tunnel. This was the 144-yard long Newline (or Britannia) Tunnel, near Bacup in Lancashire, the route through which closed in 1947 some fourteen years before filming. The frontage to Clitheroe station also appears in the background of one earlier scene.
