Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

When Derek Bond is persuaded by his mistress, Nicole Maurey, to murder his rich invalid wife, he concocts a seemingly waterproof alibi by appearing to be in charge of his yacht on a Channel crossing at the time of her demise. But the scheme proves full of holes under the close inspection of Elwyn Brook-Jones's Scotland Yard inspector. Co-written and directed by Vernon Sewell, a keen sailor in his spare time, it was a watchable enough thriller in its day, but even then it had a long delay obtaining a release. The film was partly shot on location at Shoreham and Le Havre.
