Dir: John Gilling
Starring: Bonar Colleano and Sidney James

A journalist hides out with a crook in order to get a story

This crime thriller is rather good for it has Sid James playing the part of an Italian racketeer, an unusually dramatic role for the versatile actor. A scene towards the end takes place in an unknown railway yard at night. Some wagons are visible as are the coaches of a passing express. There is also a stock shot from Brief Encounter 1945 (qv) of a streamlined ‘Coronation’ Class 4-6-2 passing Carnforth on an express, the last of the streamliners ran in 1949.
