Lance Comfort (1962)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Films such as Tomorrow at Ten proved that Lance Comfort could make tense B-thrillers to compete with the best. Unfortunately, his touch completely deserted him while shooting this plodding whodunnit, in which a detective, a novelist, a fleeing crook and his sister stumble upon dark deeds on a Devon farm. Tony Britton does his best in the lead, while Sonia Dresdel, Robert Urquhart and Eddie Byrne provide the familiar faces in support. But the mystery isn't likely to put too much strain on your little grey cells.


A writer finds himself sharing a guest house with a murderer, and tries to convince the killer's sister of the truth. Crime drama, starring Tony Britton and William Lucas.
