Having finally retrieved his tiepin from Babs Milligan's corpse, Bob Rusk waits for the lorry to pull into Wally's New Café before jumping out and hiding in the café's outside toilet.

Situated on the A41 road, close to junction 5 of the M1 motorway near Watford, Wally's New Café was a popular stop for lorry drivers and bikers. The café was demolished in the 1990s and a Costco store now occupies the site.

The Frenzy filming too place on the night of October 7th, 1971, and the crew were finally dismissed at 3:30am the following morning.[1]
