A petty thief sets a chain of events in motion when he steals counterfeit money being held for someone else
This crime thriller was one of a series of rather fine second feature films based on Edgar Wallace novels that were released between 1960 and 1965 in British cinemas. This lively little number features a climax where the villain is pursued by police through a railway freight yard, and is killed by a light locomotive running tender first. Filmed somewhere on the Southern Region, the deadly locomotive remains unidentified, but there are a lot of mineral, plank and covered wagons on display, as well as some CCT parcels vans. Although the location for this finale is not known it could be Feltham, as some overhead electrification can be seen in one shot. In addition to this, there are several other scenes filmed at a lock-up garage with Latchmere Junction signal box visible on an embankment in the background. In one shot a lengthy mixed freight is passing by but the loco is not visible. Finally, there are several glimpses of Latchmere Viaduct itself, plus a shot of the entrance to Barons Court Underground station.
