The Turn of the Tide (1935, Wilfred Lawson)


Based on a novel by Leo Walmsley, features a background shot in Whitby with a passing Dennis Lancet of Heather Motor Services. "They were the local operator based in Robin Hoods Bay and ran a route from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay. The service was taken over in 1952 by United Auto. The film dates from 1935 and tells of the rivalry between two fishing families on the Yorkshire coast. It is unusual for its age in being filmed on location in the Whitby area rather than in a studio as was usually the case at that time." (thanks Chris Hough)
