Dir: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: Nova Pilbeam and Derrick De Marney
The daughter of a police chief runs away with a man wrongly accused of murder with the aim of clearing his name
This Hitchcock crime thriller features a sequence of events that were filmed in a railway yard. Although this used nothing more than a detailed model railway with Bassett-Lowke models, there are a couple of glimpses of real railways that appear as part of back-projection. There is also a brief glimpse of the entrance to the cattle dock sidings at Twyford station in Berkshire. The film was based on the 1936 novel A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey and was released in the US under the title The Girl Was Young.
