The tunnel is best-known from the finale of the Ealing Comedy The Ladykillers (1955), directed by Alexander Mackendrick.

Hitchcock's Films

Number Seventeen (1932)

Although the railway chase scene in the film goes from London to Harwich along the Great Eastern Railway, Hitchcock shot the scenes which used real trains on stretches of the Great Northern Railway. The initial shots of the train entering the tunnel were filmed at Copenhagen Tunnel.[1]
