Frenzy (1972)

After tumbling down the steps at Wormwood Scrubs, Blaney is taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital (implied as being Hammersmith Hospital).

The exterior of St. Mary Abbot's was used for footage of Blaney entering and then escaping from the hospital, with both scenes filmed on the night of 16 September 1971. The hospital ward itself was built on Stage D of Pinewood Studios[1]
