Dir: Jack Cardiff
Starring: Van Johnson and Rosalie Crutchley
An American in London turns detective to clear his wrongly convicted father
This mystery film is pretty standard fare on a common theme and is based on the 1950 A J Cronin novel of the same name. It features a night scene at an unknown level crossing whereby Van Johnson is nearly rundown by a train, the exact identity of which is unclear. The film was largely set in Liverpool with this scene using the level crossing at Church Road in Garston, as identified by Mel Bryan of Railways in and around Merseyside.
