Even the editorially skills of David Lean cannot make the proverbial silk purse out of a sows ear.This is a bog standard quota quickie.So this means that it is filmed without close ups.So if there is a group they are grouped so that they can all speak their lines without the camera moving.This makes for a rather static film,which seems more like a filmed play.This is a thriller but there is not a great deal of action or suspense.The acting and direction are equally undistinguished.The leading character is played by Malcolm Keen father of Geoffrey Keen.it can be said without fear of contradiction that all concerned would go on to much more distinguished and worthwhile enterprises in the no too distant future.
