Dir: Henry Hathaway
Starring: Cecil Parker and Vera Miles
A blind playwright searches for kidnappers after overhearing their plot
This American mystery thriller is a minor masterpiece of film-making and was shot in Cinemascope on location in London. At the beginning there are some views from a balcony of the Savoy Hotel overlooking the Thames. Some steam-hauled trains are visible on Hungerford Bridge, but they are too far off to identify. There is also a shot of Queen Victoria Street at the junction with New Bridge Street, Blackfriars, and a partly-obscured steam-hauled passenger train is crossing the roads above.
