A writer is accused of murder when a kidnapping stunt goes terribly wrong
This short crime drama was one of a series of second feature films based on Edgar Wallace novels, released between 1960 and 1965 in British cinemas. Officially, Dead Man’s Chest was the last of them, and it features a brief scene filmed on the concourse at London Marylebone. As part of this sequence a train is visible in the platform beyond the ticket barriers, but no locomotives are seen.
