Review

A real treat for connoisseurs of British B-movies of the post-war decade. This crime thriller comes complete with such familiar elements of the genre as the raincoated detective (Dermot Walsh in a part that sounds as though it may have originally been written for a visiting American star) and settings at a nightclub and at Scotland Yard. Ferdy Mayne is on hand, as he was so often in these films, to supply smooth Continental villainy, and the film's major surprise lies in the casting of John Le Mesurier as the nightclub's shady owner.
