The police notice about Willingdon is 100% accurate as to his height, complexion , eye colour etc. yet can only provide "Age about 60". It also notes he has a scar on his left shin, whilst his security details note "Nil identification marks". See more »
Seven Days To Noon is another masterpiece from the Boulting Brothers and, as you would expect is superbly written and directed.
The much-under-rated Barry Jones is simply wonderful as the kindly professor with a moral dilemma. The cast succeeds in maintaining the tension nicely and Andre Morell is particularly convincing as the Superintendent, however I feel the most impressive part is the documentary-style photography, which allows the viewer a most interesting and revealing snapshot of post-war London.
Anyone who enjoys the classic English dramas of the 40s and 50s will love this.
Not to be missed.
Please somebody bring it out on DVD soon!
