  • Littleton Park House

    Behind the Mask (1958) was made at Shepperton, so it's no great surprise Littleton Park House is pressed into service again, this time as a drug rehabilitation hospital:

    Paul Massie gets orders from Eddie Albert so that he will stop wandering around the place in his pyjamas.

      I think this house also played a Hospital in 'Blood from the mummy's tomb', the staircase looks like the one where James Cossins playing a sadistic Nurse is about go upstairs with a younger Nurse, "now it's your turn to make me laugh".

        Not so sure if it was, Mark, as the film was made at EMI/MGM Elstree rather than Shepperton.

          But another visit to Littleton Park House by Tony Britton, this time accompanied by Donald Pleasence in Suspect (1960).

            All over the place is The Beast Must Die (1974), about 90% of which seems to have used the house and grounds, e.g.:

              Can't put photos on but the first picture above appears in many films. The first to mind for me is always the firing squad scene in The Cockleshell Hero's and then as the Polish British Embassy in Ring Of Spies.

                You can also spot the house and interior in Desert Mice and Psychomania

                  It may not be the best house in London . . .

                  . . . but it is certainly in The Best House In London (1968). Hugh Burden as Lord Tennyson is waxing lyrical.

                      Used for both interior and exterior filming in The Spy With a Cold Nose (1966).

                      If we can drag ourselves away from Fran├žoise Pascal heading in our direction, we can see that Tony Britton and Ruth Trouncer are the occupants of Littleton Park House in There's a Girl in My Soup (1970):
