Dir: Monty Banks
Starring: Stanley Lupino and Thelma Todd
A young man is set on marrying a spoilt rich girl with a fiery temper
This British farce is a modern (well in 1933 anyhow) remake of William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. It features a really good shot of a train arriving at Elstree & Borehamwood station behind an LMS Class 1P 0-4-4T on a suburban train. The locomotive is one of a handful that were fitted with a Johnson boiler and condensing equipment for working the widened lines of the Metropolitan Railway but inroads into the withdrawal of the class of 30 had started in 1929, so this is a rare glimpse indeed. The only problem is that the camera cuts just before the number comes into view.
