User Reviews

A good UK drama.

First, this film was directed by the great Cy Endfield under his black listed name: Charles de La Tour, he used for a couple of other features. This film is a crime drama film about an ordinary happy married man who falls for a woman he picked up along a road on a rainy night, when the girl had problems with her car. Of course, the gal in question hid our lead that she had a boy friend, a petty jewel thief. That's when his problems begin. You can guess the following, but it's worth, especially when you know it's directed by the film maker who gave us ZULU some years later.

A good gem.
