Scotland Yard detectives investigate a series of safe crackings
This short crime film was part of the Scotland Yard series, a series of 39 episodes produced by Anglo-Amalgamated between 1953 and 1961. They are short films, largely half-hour in length, that were originally made to support the main feature in a cinema double-bill. Each film focused on a true crime case, with only the names changed, and featured an introduction by the crime writer Edgar Lustgarten. The Square Mile Murder was No.39 in the series. These films should not be confused with the BBC television series of the same name broadcast in 1960 which are unrelated. The Square Mile Murder features one shot of a train of 4 SUB EMU’s crossing a road somewhere in south west London.
