Encyclopedia: 1972 in film (411 words)
The film is based upon the novel Goodbye Picadilly, Farewell Leicester Square by Arthur La Berne and was adapted for the screen by Anthony Schaffer.
The film opens with a sweeping shot along the River Thames to the Tower Bridge, and while the interior scenes were filmed at Pinewood Studios, much of the location filming was done in and around Covent Garden and was an homage to the London of Hitchcock's childhood.
Certainly the area as seen in the film still exists, but the market no longer operates from there, and the buildings seen in the film are now occupied by restaurants and nightclubs, and the laneways where merchants and workers once carried their produce are now occupied by tourists and streetperformers.
