A reporter and his girlfriend--also a reporter--investigate threats against a retired army officer and discover that they're linked to a series of murders and a court-martial that occurred during the war.
Peter Wells, a former world class driver of midget racers, has been struggling to regain his winning form in the two years since his discharge as an Air Force pilot. He's being pressed by his wife, who worries about his safety, to quit and his best friend 'Pic' Dallapiccola to retire to the pit crew. Wells also feels pressure from Guido Rosetti, a rival younger driver on his Corsi team, who thinks he's lost his nerve. After he has a disagreement with Pic just prior to an important race, his friend's car is involved in a horrific accident. Against orders, Wells quits the race early to be able to make his peace with his friend, who lies dying in the hospital. Tony Bellario, his Corsi boss, initially fires him for his actions, but relents and gives him one last desperate chance to redeem himself in the upcoming Grand Prix. Written by

You really have to be a fan of motor racing to enjoy this film.Quite apart from a clichéd plot and basic acting you have to sit through 2 utterly boring and similar motor races.This fact is acknowledged by the producers in so far as they have to have a commentator/narrator for both races.Raymond Baxter for the first and Paul carpenter for the second.Without the aid of the narrator you would not be able to make head nor tail of the stock footage that passes for a motor race.Richard Conte is the standard falling American star having to play this type of role as his stardom fades.Terence Fisher would move on to far better things in the near future.
