For rail fans, there are some good shots of the still fairly new Flying Scotsman in action, together with other LNER locos. The opening credits do warn you that dramatic licence has been taken with some safety issues and there are a couple of moments when you will cringe if you know anything about railways.
For the film historian, this film is reputed to be the first British film with sound. It obviously started out as a silent film. Some sections are silent with the dialogue appearing as captions on the screen and with a very repetitive musical soundtrack. Other sections have sound and dialogue. The actors are from the silent era and they are truly abysmal in some of the sound sections.
I guess that this film was a key part of creating the legend of the Flying Scotsman as the most famous steam locomotive ever which led to the National Railway Museum in York recently spending £4.5 million on its restoration.
The very first British talkie - it begins as a silent film & then sound comes in after 15 minutes, so a good one for film fans & those studying this area as part of a course. Ray Milland's film debut too - made before he goes to Hollywood, he has yet to acquire an American accent!!!!!
give present day health and safety officials a heart attack. the screen debut of Ray Milland showed the talent that was to take him
on to a great film career, and a real treat to see a hardly recogniseable young Moore Marriot (of later fame in the classic "Oh mister porter")
All in all a good watch for film and railway buffs.
and ray milland playing a jealous man make it watchable The sound wasnt so good then
and the script is poor , but its stll enjoyable .
