The Breaking Point

Lance Comfort (1961)

U Certificate


Our Score
If stars were awarded for plot contrivance, then this low-budget thriller would be well into double figures. There's a bank note printer with a gambling debt, revolutionaries with a counterfeiting plan, an armed robbery, a bomb, a touch of adultery and a speeding plane finale. All of this is breathlessly crammed into under an hour of screen time in which not one character rings true nor one fragment of storyline is in the least bit credible. Director Lance Comfort deserves a pat on the back for trying to film such nonsense. That he fails is neither surprising nor to his demerit.


The nephew of a printer gets involved with foreign spies intent on making counterfeit money. Drama, starring Peter Reynolds and Dermot Walsh.
