While the film's exteriors were shot in Turville, Buckinghamshire (doubling for Bramley End) the exterior manor house scenes were shot at Stanwell Place in Stanwell, Middlesex, which was demolished in the 1960s. The scene where Mrs Fraser and Lieutenant Jung wave Cousin Maude off from the manor house was shot in the driveway of a local house in Turville as the village is in view beyond the gates. See more »

A splendid movie well acted and directed, the story grips you from the start,the film includes self sacrifice and treacherous behaviour.The pace of the movie is fantastic not a dull moment.There is one scene which shows that ordinary decent people when cornered can fight back with a fierce tenacity when their homeland is threatened.This movie is the inspiration behind the eagle has landed and i think it would be a hit if it was remade.
