Trivia

(At around 30 mins) There is a reference to pounds and guineas. It may be helpful to all that "five guineas" meant, in 1937, five pounds plus five shillings (each guinea being a pound plus one shilling). Thus, the negotiations in that scene in the film were concluded with: "Five pounds" and "five bob for the missus." (A "bob" was the nickname for a shilling) A witty comment it was, in context, notwithstanding that the concept of "the missus" is rather outdated nowadays! Pre-decimal currency remains complicated, even in the UK, in retrospect. See more »

A Hitchcockian type Thriller
13 October 2012 | by (Chennai (Madras) India) – See all my reviews

This unknown classic is a must see. It is fast paced in the Hitchcock style and well acted with a lot of droll sequences intertwined between. Anna Lee couldn't be prettier or more charming. The entire cast including the villain Francis Sullivan are great. The British attempt at American slang is slightly noticeable but otherwise the direction is top notch. I just love that luxury aeroplane and wish that it was a reality to the present air traveller to rid him of the monotony of long travel. The storyline may be a little slow paced but is offset by the acting. Certainly a movie far before its period and not necessarily a curio but most interesting to watch.
