Rogue's Yarn

Rogue's Yarn

Vernon Sewell (1956)



Our Score
When Derek Bond is persuaded by his mistress, Nicole Maurey, to murder his rich invalid wife, he concocts a seemingly waterproof alibi by appearing to be in charge of his yacht on a Channel crossing at the time of her demise. But the scheme proves full of holes under the close inspection of Elwyn Brook-Jones's Scotland Yard inspector. Co-written and directed by Vernon Sewell, a keen sailor in his spare time, it was a watchable enough thriller in its day, but even then it had a long delay obtaining a release. The film was partly shot on location at Shoreham and Le Havre.


Crime drama directed by Vernon Sewell. A husband plots to kill his rich invalid wife. Does he have the perfect alibi? Starring Derek Bond and Hugh Latimer. Great shots of Brighton.
