Review

Our Score
Director David MacDonald had a chequered career, spent largely in the realms of the British B-movie. This is certainly one of his least distinguished ventures, being another of the dreaded quota quickies in which a third-rate Hollywood star gets to play the lead in a threadbare crime story, notable for the cheapness of the sets, the dismal dialogue and the eagerness of the supporting cast. Mark Stevens is the luckless Yank in this ham-fisted tale about amnesia, smuggling and jealousy, which is lifted only by Jean Kent's elegance and Garry Marsh as the dogged flatfoot.

Summary

Crime drama filmed at Denham Studios. Starring Mark Stevens, Jean Kent, John Bentley and Thora Hird. An American test pilot is framed for killing a wartime comrade.
