A wounded Irish nationalist leader attempts to evade police following a failed robbery

This film noir is based on the 1945 novel of the same name by F. L. Green and was filmed mainly on location in the streets of Belfast. There are good views of Belfast Corporation Tram No.179 during a riot scene outside a pub, but the Belfast trams are mostly visible in the background of the street scenes and most of the vehicles in closer detail are Belfast Corporation trolleybuses.

This is Queen’s Bridge over the River Largan and a tram is visible in the far right hand distance.
And again in this shot of Shaftesbury Square a tram is present in the background.
This is a view looking north down Victoria Street and two trams are present in the background.
As the camera looks down Legmore Street a tram passes at the end running along Ligoniel Road
This is the lower part of Ligoniel Road looking towards Crumlin Road. As passengers board a tram in the centre of the shot a trolleybus passes behind.
There is one good clear shot of a tram however. This is tram No.179 working a Falls Road service.
And in the ensuing riot scene, Robert Beatty puts himself through a window to escape.
