Synopsis:
A ship sails into the Pool of London, and for the few days it is loading or discharging, it becomes as much a part of the Pool as the wharves and warehouses, as the buildings of the city itself. To the tugmen, the watermen, the customs, the river police, it's just another job -usually. However, everything changes for two sailors on shore leave when they inadvertently become caught up in a crime as murky as the great river itself. For one of them, Johnny, life is further complicated when he falls in love with Pat, a local ticket seller, forming one of the first inter-racial relationships in British film. Produced by Ealing Studios on location in the City of London itself.
Pool of London was filmed on the River Thames and it's wharves, on London Bridge and in the blitzed streets around St. Paul's, and is an authentic and unmissable slice of film history.
