Lance Comfort (1957)

PG Certificate


Our Score
This barely acceptable B-thriller was made at a time when British cinemas habitually ran supporting features to give you time to buy your soft drinks and popcorn. Directed by the indefatigable Lance Comfort (king of the British Bs but without a fan following), it's a forgery caper involving shifty foreigners, an international criminal mastermind, a lady without a passport and a film stuntman, played by Robert Hutton (an American actor whose Hollywood career never took off). Hutton later popped up in a Cliff Richard frolic, Finders Keepers, and as a presidential aide in the Bond movie You Only Live Twice.


A film stunt pilot is forced to put all his daredevil skills to good use in the fight against dastardly crooks who have framed him as part of their passport forgery racket. Thriller, starring Robert Hutton, Lisa Gastoni, Martin Benson and Leonard Sachs.
