    A sneaky one in the backcloth for the Stage Door Canteen in Dreaming (1944):

      Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) [UK|USA]

      IMDb says that two countries including the UK were involved in the production in this 5th. instalment of the Harry Potter film series.

      Quoting IMDb: "With their warning about Lord Voldemort's return scoffed at, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts."

      Found the following trailer:

      "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Flight of the Order of the Phoenix"

      Harry Potter and the others flying on broomsticks by the anchored WW2 cruiser HMS Belfast after passing Tower Bridge in the background from 00:00:53 to 00:00:55.

        Bit of a cheat for this one as it's from an American film:

        But it sets the scene as London (albeit Universal Studios backlot version), chronology bearing no close examination, for Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde (1953).

          No screen caps I'm afraid, but in Disney's Diamonds on Wheels (1973), chief villain Allan Cuthbertson operates from premises within sight of the bridge.

            Another cheating one here, (1) because it's from an American film, albeit set in Victorian "London" and (2) . . .

            It's from The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective (1986), with the chase on as the devilish Professor Ratigan tries to flee from Basil and his companions.

              No Time To Die (2020) [UK|USA]



              Quoting IMDb: "James Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when Felix Leiter, an old friend from the CIA, turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology."

              Release date: April 2020

              JAMES BOND 007: NO TIME TO DIE Super Bowl Trailer (2020)

              Found a trailer that has a very quick glimpse of the Tower Bridge which is different (well it's a Bond film) since it appears to NOT be the obligatory flyover and also simultaneously includes a reflection:

              As usual with a trailer one hopes that this shot makes it to the final release.

                The Siege of Sidney Street (1960) [UK]



                According to Wikipedia: "The film dramatises the 1909 Tottenham Outrage - a bungled wages-snatch which resulted in the murder of a police officer and a ten-year-old bystander as well as the two armed robbers - and the 1911 Siege of Sidney Street, in which armed police surrounded a house in East End of London occupied by a gang who had killed three police officers during a bungled attempt to break into a jeweller's shop. The film depicts the two events as both taking place in 1911, the work of the same gang."

                Tower Bridge appears from 00:00:00 to 00:00:12

                  lazarus 6 posted a picture from The Floating Dutchman (1952/53) some time ago, but here's a "clean" image minus the titles:

                  Dead Fish (2005) [UK|Germany]



                  Quoting IMDb: "Traitors, killers and lovers collide in London."

                  Tower Bridge appears from 00:47:58 to 00:48:27 during which loan shark Danny Devine (Robert Carlyle) gets pitched into the Thames from the top of locksmith (Andrew-Lee Potts) Abe Klein's van after it comes to a sudden halt against the bridge's railing.

                  • We've previously seen the bridge behind the main titles of Callan (1974), but here it is again later in the film behind Carl Mohner and his chauffeur Don Henderson:
