    Just a brilliant, brilliant film for me. I agree, you can never have too much of MR, and if I ever had to live in a film this would be one of them. Just a question, though, the exterior locations weren't actually Pimlico, were they?

    No, they're Vauxhall on the other side of the river.

    Thought so - didn't like to say. Sure I recognise some of the road junctions!

    The main outdoor set was built on a bombsite in Hercules Road, Lambeth.

    Filming of Passport to Pimlico, 1948
    Richard Hearne (r) and Philip Stainton (l) struggle over a stolen bicycle during the open-air filming of an Ealing Studios production entitled Passport to Pimlico. Philip Stainton was a real-life policeman before he turned to acting.

    Richard Hearne, aka 'Mr. Pastry', was uncredited as the 'Nighttime Drunk on Bicycle'. I saw Philip Stainton a few days ago in John and Julie and was upset to find out that he died in the arms of his actress wife during a stage performance.

    If anyone knows the actor Simeon Andrews, his mother Joan (a friend of my father's) was apparently an Extra in this film. I'm sure it will be much easier to spot 'Bus Conductor' Tommy Godfrey and Arthur Lovegrove, maybe even a young Michael Craig.
