When Dr. Montgomery (Alastair Sim) deals with the blow Jim Coulter (John Mills) sustained to his head, he applies a round sticking plaster. In the next shot it has changed to a horizontal rectangle. When Jim arrives at the Alcazar club, the plaster is a vertical rectangle. By the time he reaches The Lucky Star to accost Ted Purvis (Stewart Granger) the plaster has disappeared. See more »

Enjoyable and underrated
13 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Waterloo Road is an enjoyable and underrated film I think. It is not perfect as it is too short and occasionally too rushed. However, the cinematography and scenery are agreeable and the soundtrack is bouncy and energetic. The script is witty yet does a good job in the more serious bits, the story is interesting and well crafted with some risqué themes for the time and the direction is competent. The acting is fine, John Mills is delightful and I was surprised at his energy here, Stewart Granger is dashing and Alastair Sim as always is a joy. The best comes from Jean Kent, who is delicious and Ben Williams, who provides some of the most entertaining bits of the film. My favourite bit? The climax was hilarious I thought. Overall, if a little flawed it is good fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox
