Pool of London, Prize of Gold

Both Pool of London (1951) & Prize of Gold (1955) had scenes shot within yards of each other in Royal Mint Street. The first, in the street and in The Crown & Seven Stars pub; the second, in the street and in Goldschmid's (Transport) yard. Richard Widmark, the star of Prize, runs into the court leading to Chamber Street and exits somewhere in Shadwell! I, as a naughty schoolboy, had to leave my mark somehow and was responsible for an erratically jumping window in Prize.
