Shadow Of A Man, a crime movie from 1955 with footage of Hastings pier as it was then

Another one from TPTV Encore, which has been a brilliant find as far as old movies are concerned, Shadow Of A Man is a 1955 British black and white film.

It stars Rona Anderson, Paul Carpenter, Jane Griffiths, Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Bill Nagy and Tony Quinn.

Following the death of a man, the coroner initially records a heart attack but the police are suspicious and pursue it further.

It turns out he was murdered and the plot revolves basically around who did it.

Hastings pier features in the movie and that’s one of the great things about old films, you get to see places like that as they were at the time.
