When you see People's in the title you know its Communist
High Treason is a bit less paranoid than some of those anti-Communist thrillers coming out of America at this time. But it does take the same kind of strident tone.
Liam Redmond of the Royal Navy and Andre Morrell of Scotland Yard latch onto a tip that something the Reds might be planning is really big. A whole lot of troop movements are noted behind the Iron Curtain. Could it be the big invasion? If so, what's planned for Great Britain?
It's big all right, a well coordinated plan of sabotage in several locations including the giant Battersea Power Works just outside of London. This is to leave the British vulnerable to invasion so they can neither aid the continent or protect themselves.
Heading all of this and prepared to be the Communist Quisling is MP Anthony Nicholls, an Independent elected on the People's Progress Party. When you see that you know its Communist.
For the people who were dealing with Klaus Fuchs and McLean and Burgess the subversive threat was real enough. Of course I doubt Stalin was ready for this kind of action. The proof is he never attempted anything like what is depicted here.
The cast performs well. Nicholls's part is the most interesting. You wonder who in our Congress might have been viewed as the equivalent.
