Did You Know?


This movie was made at Viking Studios which was located in St Mary Abbots Place, a quiet cul-de-sac off Kensington High Street in central London. The studios were behind the facades of houses whose address was 1-5 St Mary Abbots Place. The houses, like all the others in this short street had the pleasing aspect of all being built in different styles. This was a boon for filmmakers on low budgets as it meant they could create the illusion of filming in different places without ever leaving the street. In "I'm a Stranger", John Kelly walks past number 5, knocks on the door and enters number 3 (actually a door into the studio). Later, Greta Gynt tells James Hayter (who comes to her assistance) that her car has broken down. In reality, they're across the road from the studio. When she and James Hayter drive off, they're heading towards the end of the cul-de-sac. They stop upon discovering their stowaway and are, in fact, outside number 2 - which is where they started. Their stowaway asks to be taken to 'Dr. Westcott, number one Oxley Street'. They oblige and arrive at 1 St Mary Abbots Place, just across the road and another door into the studio. See more »


Inspector Craddock: Well one thing's certain. The House isn't going to talk.
Greta Gynt: I wonder if we could make it?

Quirky B film has its moments
10 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not a comedy as billed, though it does have its share of amusing moments, by no means all of them intentional. It gets off to a quirky start, not always maintained, with glamorous star Greta Gynt, playing herself, having engine trouble en route to meeting a Hollywood producer, accepting a lift from local window cleaner and amateur sleuth James Hayter, discovering an injured woman in the back of his van and even more improbably, hanging about to help him investigate. Between them they help to make the film more watchable, but far too much of the running time consists of the cast standing around talking on cheap sets, with a great deal of tedious dialogue about a missing will and a family dispute in particular. Result is a danger of the audience dropping off and missing the rather clever twist ending. Jean Cadell has an unsympathetic part as usual, as a charmless nurse, Charles Lloyd Pack hams it up as a smug lawyer and there's an early role for a young and barely recognisable Fulton MacKay as a doctor called Alastair Campbell. Another famous-name-to-be, this time behind the scenes as editor was future Carry On director Gerald Thomas. Despite the duller patches, this can be recommended to fans of British 1950's B films, especially for the enjoyable performances from Greta Gynt and James Hayter.
