Review

Our Score
Jointly directed by Victor Hanbury, Lance Comfort and Max Greene, this subdued thriller, set just before the Second World War, is lifted by James Mason's performance as a "wronged man", in this case a refugee accused of being a spy. The plot has enough suspense and intrigue built in, but this movie only fitfully comes to life as Mason sets out discover who the real villain is.

Summary

An Austrian medical student is accused of spying while holidaying in pre-Second World War France and strives to prove his innocence to the sceptical authorities. But they refuse to believe that his snaps of military installations were an accidental by-product of his love of wildlife photography, leaving him facing the prospect of the death sentence. Espionage thriller, starring James Mason, Lucie Mannheim, Raymond Lovell and Julien Mitchell.
