Storyline

It is pouring with rain at one minute to midnight on Friday the thirteenth, and the driver of a London bus is peering through his blurred windscreen as his vehicle sails down an empty road. Suddenly, lightning strikes, and a vast crane above topples into the path of the oncoming bus... Then Big Ben begins to wind backwards. Time recedes. And we discover the lives of all the passengers and the events that brought them to that late-night bus journey, from the con-man with a hundred-pound cheque to the businessman's distraught and elderly wife. Time flows on, inevitably, to the crash -- and past it, as some live and some die. Written by Igenlode Wordsmith

Trivia

Towards the beginning of the film Jessie Matthews (playing Millie) asks the bus conductor (played by her husband Sonnie Hale) "You won't forget to put me off at Linden Gardens, will you?" Sonnie's prompt reply is "No fear!" -- there was very little chance of his forgetting that particular address, since his own flat in Linden Gardens had seen the beginning of their relationship only a few years earlier...

Neat & Tidy Triumph of 1930's British Cinema.
23 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite its age, this film retains its undoubted charm and attraction, and is a fine, surviving example of early British cinema. It has an underlying air of eeriness, interspersed with shafts of humour which are not out of place, and serve to demonstrate the assured direction & production values involved. So many episodic type films are disjointed and untidy, but this is not one of them. The standard of acting helps a great deal, and the various disparate characters come across as interesting and believable. All in all, this long-forgotten little gem is well worth anyone's attention, in spite of the one jarring note in the film which, surprisingly, escaped the censor's attention!
