Review

Our Score
Routine British second-feature, typical of its period, although Arthur Kennedy (five times nominated for an Oscar) is a cut above the average imported American lead, and the rest of the cast isn't bad either. Kennedy has a fling with nightclub singer Constance Smith, who involves him in a crime. Producers Robert S Baker and Monty Berman began with B-films like this, moved into Hammer-style horror, and ended up developing several major TV series. Screenwriter "Jonathan Roach" is actually director Cy Endfield, taking refuge in the UK from the McCarthy witch-hunts.
