Saville Row
7 April 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

An early Victor Saville entry with no hint of song or dance let alone Jesse Matthews. It is in fact a sort of Ashenden-lite, a'spy' story set in the first World War, a conflict in which Saville himself was a participant. Brian Aherne learns from a dying German about something called the W plan, reports it to his superiors, and is sent to obtain what details he can from the mother of the dead man. By a coincidence known only to screenwriters his own finance, Madeleine Carroll is a guest at the house but before you can say 'your papers, plizz' Aherne has been rumbled and sent to that place where all good - or in an inept sense of the word, bad spies go. From then on it's a case of will he be able to foil the cunning German plan. You REALLY don't know the answer.
