Charles de Lautour,
American Frank Pryor (Lloyd Bridges)) arrives in London to take up an interrupted romance with Pauline French (Moira Lister), whom he hasn't seen in six years. At the airport a man standing alongside Pryor is slain by an unseen sniper, and he is detained by Scotland Yard for questioning. Released, he goes to Pauline's apartment, and learns that she had an intimate association with the slain man and is not interested in talking about it. Scotland Yard also knows this and Pryor and Pauline are kept under surveillance. After complications involving the dead man's wife, it is found that the man Pauline knows isn't dead at all and isn't who he is supposed to be. Written by

Neither this nor Wikipedia mention that there was a 1937 film called "The Limping Man". It was the first shown in Lyme Regis's Regent cinema, opened in that year, and the story is that the mayor of the town, who did the opening, Will Emmett, happened to have a limp. The film was shown again in this historic Art Deco cinema (Lyme is said to be the smallest town in England, or possibly Britain, to have a cinema) this Oct. 12, the 70th anniversary - free, with lavish refreshments and firework display provided by the management - a wonderful occasion. That was why I looked for "The Limping Man" in Wikipedia and to my surprise found only this later film. Can anyone give further information about the 1937 film? It was a thriller with a plot too involved for me to follow in all details! Guy Ottewell
