PG Certificate


Our Score
After a string of supporting roles for Universal in the early 1950s, Alex Nicol earned a dubious promotion to leading man in this British thriller. It was also something of a comedown for Clifford Evans who, before war service intervened, seemed destined for great things after his performances in films such as Love on the Dole. Director John Gilling tries to push this tale of art theft and murder along at a decent pace, but spotting who framed Nichol's brother is hardly taxing.


A USAAF security man tries to clear his brother's name after he is framed by an art smuggler. Crime drama, starring Alex Nicol and Veronica Hurst.
