The Yellow Balloon?
I remember (vaguely) a film set in post-war London I saw a couple of times as a child (early-mid 80s) on TV.
At the climax of the film, a boy is chased into a tube station (which is possibly closed). He runs down the circular stairs and is followed onto the platform. A train rushes through whilst the boy and his assailant are on the platform.
That's all I can remember... I wonder if anyone can recognise this film from such limited details...
I'll have a look at that on the IMDB. I really can't remember much about it - other than the scene I've mentioned - which used to give me the creeps!!!
Just looked it up! That sounds like the film... Thank you very much! I'll have to keep my eye on the TV schedules!
I remember the scene as you described and The Yellow Balloon certainly does sound like it could be the one.
I had a feeling Robert Mitchum was the 'baddie' but I must have been wrong as he's not in it. Unless I remember something similar.
