Trailer for Serious Charge

I came across this 1959 film on YouTube, about someone falsely accused of sexual offending. It was filmed on location in Stevenage old town and was the first screen acting role for pop singer Cliff Richard. Does anyone remember this being filmed?

You can see the whole film on YouTube, with the opening titles rolling over shots of the High Street, here (click).

  • I remember being home late from school through witnessing some aspects associated with the film making of Serious Charge in Stevenage Old Town. Springfield House in the High Street and the old police station in Stanmore Road were locations where stars Anthony Quayle, Sarah Churchill and Andrew Ray acted their roles. I was engrossed with all the action albeit perhaps that the scenes looked to be a little chaotic! After the morning shopping my mother watched the action of the scene outside Springfield House where a vehicle approached the property and tediously performed several times before the director was satisfied with the take!
