The Titfield Thunderbolt
Rail, Road and Sea • Comedy, UR
When a corporation threatens to take over a small railway line, a group of villagers decide to try and run it for themselves. The final collaboration between director Charles Crichton and writer T.E.B. Clarke, The Titfield Thunderbolt is a stunningly scenic gem in Ealing's repertoire. Anarchic and, when necessary, silly, The Titfield Thunderbolt brings us often raucous rural scenes in stunning colour.
