FILM – Brief Encounter

When Peter Brown identified the re-used opening footage of Brief Encounter (1945) as the opening footage for the film Wrong Number (1959) late last month he took the opportunity to say that he had never been persuaded by the well recorded fact that it was filmed at Watford Junction. Needless to say, I couldn’t let that go without enquiring further because even if Watford Junction is popularly recorded elsewhere we here at ReelStreets like our published facts to be correct. We also accept that we are human!

As I am persuaded by Peter’s “argument”, and having done a little research myself I thought that on the basis that we have many railway workers and enthusiasts as contributors to the Website we should open up the subject for discussion and perhaps settlement.  Please click here to see the full article.

Unsung Hero

The anonymous and ubiquitous Peter, him of the shoes in an earlier blog (November 2014), regularly contributes to ReelStreets, and with his eagle eye, scours the capital for available locations. 

His accuracy with his camera is demonstrated in the latest three pictures now loaded on "One Way Out" that Peter recently submitted. Finding a location is often difficult enough, capturing the correct angle is often impossible with Google Street View, and because of the different focal lengths of modern still cameras lenses and the cine cameras that have been in use over the last hundred years, an exact comparison once captured, is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

The three shots by Peter are spot on in every respect. Well done that man. Thank you.
