British Beaches in the Movies: Dawden

What could pack more of an emotional punch than a 1970s movie with Michael Caine seeking revenge for his brother? Get Carter (1971) is a cult classic inspired by a real-life murder in the North East of England. Fitting then that the notorious final scene was filmed at Dawden Beach in County Durham, a few miles from Seaham. Unfortunately Get Carter was remade in 2000 with Sylvester Stallone playing Jack Carter. Dawden Beach did not make a return to the franchise but Michael Caine did put in a cameo. To be honest, the less said about the remake the better.
