The truth about Brief Encounter, SHE had no teeth and HE was a psychopath! - Daily Mail

The famous scene from one of the best-loved British films ever is etched on the memories of the millions who have seen it. ‘Happy. ’ asks Trevor Howard’s Dr Alec, of his married lover. ‘No, not re-al-ly,’ replies Celia Johnson’s guilt-ridden Laura, with her cut-glass vowels. That it isn’t worth it,’ says Alec, who is himself married. Brief Encounter, filmed during the last months of the war, is a tale of forbidden love and doing the right thing in an era of British stiff upper lips and high moral standards, and it is 70 years old. When it was released before Christmas in 1945 — although the film is timeless and never mentions the war — it struck a chord with many who were struggling with their consciences over an illicit wartime romance and were now faced with owning up or... ‘I’m an ordinary woman,’ says Laura, with huge, expressive eyes, at the start of the film. It was written by Noel Coward and directed by master film-maker David Lean, whose later movies included The Bridge On The River Kwai, Dr Zhivago and Lawrence Of Arabia. He was knighted in 1984 and died in 1991. Now an exhibition of Lean’s work is on show at Carnforth station, Lancashire, where key scenes for Brief Encounter were shot. The film is told in flashback, starting ‘on an ordinary day, in the most ordinary place in the world’ — Carnforth station’s refreshment room. When Laura gets some grit in her eye, Dr Alec comes to her rescue. Their friendship blossoms after a chance encounter in the Kardomah cafe, then they go to the pictures together — and, fatefully, agree to meet again, falling in love to the strains of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No 2. Laura is happily married to... Celia Johnson was in many ways just like Laura Jesson, agrees her daughter, the actress Lucy Fleming, today. ‘She was very moral and wouldn’t have liked that kind of situation to arise in her own life,’ says Lucy, 68, who is married to the actor Simon Williams and was best known for her role in Seventies series Survivors. Far from being a glamorous movie star, down-to-earth Celia wore thick-lensed spectacles and false front teeth, having knocked out her own jumping off a pier on to a pebbly beach when she was in her teens.
