The title refers to the distance reporter Banner (Paul Carpenter) keeps ahead of the police in the third of his three film adventures, featuring different stars but all based on popular crime novels by Robert Chapman. Not at all bad for a British co-feature of its time, with some good crackles of humour in the dialogue and a lively tempo. Ex-boxing champion Freddie Mills appears in one of several roles he played in British films of the 50s.
