Reel Britannia podcast - a very British podcast about very British movies...with just a hint of professionalism.

Scott and Steven are joined this week by Anthony, host of Film Gold, Glass Onion : On John Lennon, and Life and Life Only to discuss Train of Events (1949)

The portmanteau film “Train of Events” brings together the many talents of Ealing Studios to present four stories linked by a train bound for Liverpool.

This Ealing anthology weaves drama and comedy amongst the stories documenting various train passengers, all leading up to an incident to change their lives.

Starring Jack Hawkins, Gladys Henson, Leslie Phillips, Joan Dowling, Valerie Hobson, Laurence Payne, John Gregson, and introducing Peter Finch in his first British film (having emigrated from Australia). the film’s segments were directed by Ealing luminaries Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden, & Sidney Cole.

“Train of Events” opened at the Gaumont Haymarket cinema in Lonodn on the 18th of August 1949.

"Well, don't overwhelm me ducks. I dunno as my poor old ticker'll stand it."
