Reed with axe in Berkeley Square, London W1

Same building to left, same tree to the right. This is looking up the west side where I'll Never Forget You (similar title) and Eleven Harrowhouse were filmed. SJ

Reed approaches his work place Economist Plaza, London SW1, seen in Blowup, Sebastian and Endless Night.

Now. SJ

Welles and Reed on a rooftop and I've seen that church before...probably taken from a block of flats on the corner of Thayer Street and George Street, submitted by Greg

Roman Catholic Church of St. James, Spanish Place, 22 George Street, Marylebone, W1U 3QY. Looking west/northwest. Discovered by Greg Mishevski. Copyright: Google Maps Street View.

Reed arrives at the family home he shares with Craig. I'd say Montrose Place, SW1.

The modern block has been rebuilt. It is Montrose Place. SJ

Blenheim Crescent, London W11: thanks to Alan F, one of many experts at Britmovie.co.uk, for this identification.

The spire has gone. SJ

43, Blenheim Crescent: Reed seeks a new job from Rodway.

Yep, 43, and this confirms the previous shot if there was any doubt. SJ

Montague Street and Great Russell Street

Mostly cream coloured buildings now. SJ

View the other way, showing John Thaw's place in Praise Marx and Pass the Ammunition.

View from street level. SJ

Reed visits Craig at her school: that sign is tantalising.

St Alban's Grove, W8, Roland-Francoise Lack states,"If you go up along the street beyond the trees you can see the more modern looking building with wide windows, and if you turn around there's the building that was a restaurant and is still a restuarant". And there is still a sign!

Same place, a restaurant in the background.

St Alban's Grove, the other way. RF Lack found this one as well. Restaurant still there.

White and Reed on the Chelsea Embankment, SW3

image no 11

Unchanged. Cheyne Walk opposite Milman's Street. SJ

This looks like Trinity College, Cambridge

image no 12

And it is, seen also in Bachelor of Hearts. SJ

Definitely the fountain in the centre of the quadrangle in Trinity, called Great Court, the same as the Great Court Run, to be run in under 43 seconds while the clock chimes 12, seen in Chariots of Fire but filmed at Eton.

Now. SJ

Cambridge has never looked prettier...and this is not Trinity as above but the view from the gatehouse of King's College with thanks to Brian Dockerill.

Nice music by Francis Lai during this interlude too.
