Saloon Bar is a 1940 British comedy thriller film directed by Walter Forde and starring Gordon Harker, Elizabeth Allan and Mervyn Johns. It was made by Ealing Studios and its style has led to comparisons with the later Ealing Comedies, unlike other wartime Ealing films which are different in tone.[1] It is based on the 1939 play of the same name by Frank Harvey in which Harker had also starred.[2] The film's sets were designed by the art director Wilfred Shingleton.

An amateur detective tries to clear an innocent man of a crime before the date of his execution.[3]

The action takes place over one evening in the saloon bar of a London pub, just before Christmas. The regulars discuss the forthcoming execution for robbery and murder of the boyfriend of one of the barmaids. A pound note from the robbery is found in the till. Convinced of the condemned man's innocence, and led by bookie Joe Harris, they trace how the note came to be there and unmask the true killer.
