Thoughts about the locations
8 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Haven't seen this movie since it came out in the 1970s until I bought the DVD recently. Despite what it says on here, the only recognisable location in Slough is the railway station. All the other main location shooting is in my old home town of Staines, Middlesex. The editing is cut about so the views don't appear in sequence - in the opening Jenny's cab turns right out of Thames Street and past the Angel Hotel, she's then seen inside the cab crossing Staines bridge (which would be left from Thames Street)and then arriving at her digs in Kingston Road (right from Thames Street). Oliver Reed lives over the old car showroom (Crimbles?)and later in the film there's a splendid sequence when he is stuck at Pooley Green level crossing in Egham. St.Peter's Church appears, too, along with Matthew Arnold School (as the 'Tech') and the Kingston Road Primary School. A great movie for locals who lived around Staines in the 1960s. And to think the gorgeous Miss Mills was in our town and I never knew!
