U Certificate


Our Score
When an innocent man is sentenced to be hanged for murder, he invokes an old Spanish curse on the judge, prosecuting counsel and jury. After deaths begin to take place, suspicion falls on the condemned man but his sudden death only enhances the mystery. Tony Wright has the most colourful part as the judge's wayward son, a crime reporter, but Michael Hordern as the judge gives the sharpest performance. It's the only film directed by top editor Ralph Kemplen, who wisely returned to his real talent, cutting Room at the Top, Oliver! and others.
