Review

Our Score
The third of four featurettes churned out by Francis Searle in 1962, this provides a sobering insight into how the rest of the British film industry was handling espionage thrillers while Terence Young was making Dr No. With his heyday as TV's William Tell already behind him, Conrad Phillips stars as a spy sent to investigate when the body of a defector is washed up on an Irish beach. The direction is as perfunctory as the script.

Summary

When a British secret agent's body washes up on the coast of Ireland, evidence soon emerges that he was a traitor providing information to the Russians. However, the dead man has been framed and the real double agent is still at large. Spy thriller, starring Conrad Phillips and Jane Griffiths.
