The married owner of a book store becomes enmeshed in blackmail and murder
As the credits role at the start of this film noir there is an excellent tracking shot of a tram crossing Westminster Bridge in the final year of operation of London’s trams. There is also a brief scene at Windsor & Eton Riverside station and a SR pre-war EMU is visible in the platforms, possibly a 2 BIL. The film was adapted from the 1947 stage play Last Page by James Hadley Chase, whose birth name was really René Lodge Brabazon Raymond!!
