The SR staged the climactic train wreck one Sunday near Herriard, on their Basingstoke - Alton branch line. The passenger cars seen are old enough ones that they were gaslit; the gas cylinders were emptied before the crash to avoid a fire hazard. The tracks were cleared and repaired in time for service to resume on Monday morning. See more »
The 25 year old Angus MacPhail made his lucky break in this silent film where he adapted a play for the screen. It was the same sort of thing that Alfred Hitchcock was doing at the time and their paths would eventually meet over a decade later.
