Writer/director Cy Endfield had good reason to disguise his name!
Actually the print I saw on TV carried no director credit at all! Rest of the cast: Jean St. Clair (Miss Birchington), Bruce Beeby (Barry), Cyril Chamberlain (Gray), Reggie Morris (Ellis), Peter Swanwick (captain), John Horsley (inspector).
Production manager: George Fowler. Camera operator: Eric Besche. Make-up: Fred Williamson. Set continuity: Doris Martin. Assistant director: Chris Noble. Made at Nettlefold Studios, Walton-on-Thames. Length: 7,246 feet. 80 minutes. A Tempean Film, released by Eros.
I was always curious who Charles de Lautour (sic) was, so I'm glad to have the mystery explained. Not that this knowledge improves the movie at all. It is actually a drawn-out and rather tedious affair with lots of dull dialogue and little action. The tedium is relieved only by the attractive presence of Miss Constance Smith. She's a honey who deserves a far more personable leading man than super-dull Arthur Kennedy. Drastic pruning of Mr Kennedy's scenes with other members of the cast would at least make the film's unusually elongated length endurable. Why the producers spun it out to 80 minutes instead of the usual 60, is the real mystery here!
