This B-movie crime drama is based on A Toy for Jiffy, a short story by Roy Vickers from his Department of Dead Ends series that appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine in 1956. The movie features scenes at the end that were filmed at London Marylebone station with a very good shot of ex-LMS Class 4P 2-Cylinder 2-6-4T No.42618 departing on a train of maroon-liveried BR Mk.1’s. The film was later released with Edgar Wallace Mystery credits though it is not considered part of the original series of Edgar Wallace films, that were released in British cinemas between 1960 and 1965.
