Films shot in Hadleigh

From the 1950s

Kenneth More opening North West Frontier at the Kingsway Cinema, Hadleigh (Essex)

There are at least two films with references to Hadleigh;

click on this one to see a short, silent film of Kenneth More and the Kursaal Flyer in 1959 in front of the Kingsway Cinema.   Under the playback area are some notes which explain the reason for his visit.        We have contacted the Film Archive to suggest they remove Suffolk from the notes and show Essex instead.

About eight minutes into this one from about 1955, which has a soundtrack, is a brief section on Hadleigh Castle;  click here to start.

With grateful thanks to the East Anglian Film Archive.
