Dial 999 is a crime drama based on the 1955 novel of the same name by Bruce Graeme. RKO Radio Pictures purchased the rights to distribute it in the United States, where it was released in a cut form as The Way Out in 1956 with its running time reduced by 11 minutes. There is a brief sequence whereby Gene Nelson and Mona Freeman are stopped during their escape by car by the closed gates of a level crossing. As they impatiently wait, an EMU crosses, but it is not known where this was filmed.
