    Here are two locations from THE BARON: The Legions of Ammak (1966)



    George Murcell has already walked across Mansion House Street (this footage is also used as stock in RANDALL AND HOPKIRK DECEASED).



    We next see him walk past this branch of the Midland Bank (possibly 'MIDLAND BANK Stock Exchange Branch')







    He then walks into 'the International Trust Bank'.

    Would it be usual for a director to be invoved with this shooting as it featured the 'real' actor rather than than a double, or would it still be left to the Second Unit?



    This sequence also features some action on the good old Elstree backlot with George (a multi millionaire) finding a newspaper in a rubbish bin and reading it.

    This was a very entertaining episode John, with great performances by Isa Miranda and Peter Wyngarde (in a dual role). Any recollections you'd care to share ?

    Usually the director would handle the situation, if a main actor is involved. I do know of, and have been involved in situations when this did not happen.



    The named director agrees to the situation because of time or money problems.

    The second piccie looks like it could be the then Midland Bank ( now HSBC ) in Cheapside, just round the corner from where I work.

    This certainly shows on screen, John - it's great fun to watch.

    Thanks Marty, excellent finding and confirmation.



    The first bank is probably best found by someone with access to a directory to see if there was there a MIDLAND BANK Stock Exchange Branch.
