Trivia

The play being performed at the Walsham Bay Repertory Theatre is "Night Alone", starring Hugo Bale, Molly Lester, John Flaxton and Carol Burns. This was a genuine play from the late-'30s and is an in-joke as, like this film, it was written by Jeffrey Dell. See more »

Filming locations!
7 February 2019 | by voicebox-3See all my reviews

A terrific British B movie of the period! One of the filming locations listed is Camber Sands, but the denouement takes place at Dungeness where the Lighthouse and the Railway Station of the Hythe/Romney and Dymchurch Narrow Gauge Railway feature strongly - the line swings around the Dungeness terminus and can be seen quite clearly.
