Shows the transition from silent to sound
1 October 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was made by British International Pictures who with the Indian of the talkies decided to turn their unreleased ailments into part sound.Instead. of inserting sound sequences they turned the second half into a complete talkie.They also did this on The Informer and Kitty.By 1931 ailments were dead,and any cinema that could not afford the equipment closed.The sequence where the actors are walking along the outside of the train was truly hair raising.The actors had no doubles and there were no process shots.You could see the looks of sheer terror on the face of the actors.The cast is interesting.Ray Mill and is a rather cocky engineer in one of his early films.Moore Marriott is the train driver before he found fame with Will Hay a few years later.No doubt this film is popular with train enthusiasts for its many views of the steam era over eighty six years ago.
