Our Score
What's it all about, Michael? Two years before his career-making performance in Zulu, the future double Oscar winner was marking time taking small parts in humdrum crime dramas such as this. The nominal star is Donald Houston, playing a policeman who takes a leave of absence to set up his own detective agency. The film was not seen in America until 1966, when the producers took advantage of Caine's new-found success and released it with his name above the title. Gordon Flemyng is better known for directing Peter Cushing in Dr Who and the Daleks and Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD.
