Interesting Movies From The Past...

One of the finest and funniest of films to come out of the Ealing studio in 1953 was The Titfield Thunderbolt. There can hardly be anyone on the planet that has never watched this wonderful little movie. Completely English, and depicting English country life, it’s a rural wealth of interesting characters. When the then British Railways made their minds up to close the Titfield to Mallingford branch line the villagers decide to run the rail line themselves in a very innovative and humorous way…Full of the colour of a warm English summer, the Michael Balcon production features John Gregson, Stanley Holloway, George Relph, Hugh Griffith and Sidney James. T.E.B. Clarke wrote the screenplay and it was directed by Charles Crichton.
