Our Score
This is nothing to do with Sandra Bullock or computer crime, but a tepid thriller that might have enjoyed more box-office success under its American title, Project M7. Although best known for his literary adaptations, director Anthony Asquith was no stranger to suspense movies but, having just scored a major hit with The Importance of Being Earnest, you can hardly blame him for plodding through John Pudney's novel about aviation espionage with little enthusiasm. The surprisingly strong cast probably deserved better, and only the ever-dependable Herbert Lom manages to give a good account of himself.


Aviation scientists working on a top-secret project are baffled by a murder within their ranks, but soon discover a spy is at work. Thriller, starring Phyllis Calvert, Noel Willman, Herbert Lom and James Donald.
