Director Anthony Asquith’s silent classic is a working class love story about an electrician and a porter who both fall in love with a shop girl they meet on the London Underground on the same day. Set in the subterranean entrails of the London Underground in the 1920s with iconic shots of Lots Road Power Station in Chelsea, gentle Bill and macho Bert charge through tunnels and across monumental buildings to fight it out. No one “minds the gap” and passengers smoke, nonchalantly dropping stubs on the wooden carriage floors. The 2009 restoration by the British Film Institute makes the film look fresh and new.
