The Miniver Story (1950, Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon)
In the opening street scene London Transport AEC STLs are seen, one of which is 1STL1 or 2STL1 type JJ43xx on service 6 to Kensal Rise.
It is not, however, the bus Greer Garson is seen alighting from, although the scene is cut to suggest it:
She enters a tea shop and sits in the window reading a letter. Outside more STLs and a Leyland Titan can be seen passing.
More interesting is a provincial Bristol K/Eastern Coachworks, one of 190 used by London Transport from 1949. The LT roundel can be seen on the radiator. Since the scene is set on the day in 1945 that the end of the war with Germany was announced, this is a forgiveable anachronism! It's a back projection, so it's not particularly clear:
Close to the end she is again seen getting off a bus, this time RT499 (HLX316) on service 11 to Liverpool Street is seen from behind.
As she sits in the window of an office, numerous STLs, RTs and possibly a G-class Guy Arab pass the window (like the earlier shot a back projection).
