Lightning Conductor (1938, Gordon Harker)


Gordon Harker plays Albert Rughouse, cockney conductor of a bus on the Victoria Station-Epping Forest service, which is commandeered by foreign spies. A sequence on London Transport's Chiswick skidpan has a continuity error: London Transport Bluebird AEC Renown LT1277 (GX5213) becomes AEC Regent STL1364 (CLX592) on the move (shedding an axle in the process?) then reverts to LT1277 when stationary. The interior of the STL's cab is obviously mocked up (check the wobbly wheel). Also seen is AEC Regent STL10 (JJ4361). (thanks to Bob Wingrove and Colin Read)
