Storyline

Several murders of nuclear scientists, that baffles Scotland Yard, occur in London about the same time that Bill Locklin, a special officer from the United States State Department, arrives to oversee the transfer of Professor Leon Dushenko, a Russian scientist who as fled the U.S.S.R. An attempt is made on Dushenko's life with a monkey's paw-print found at the scene. Newspaperman reporter Harry Martin is covering the story. Duskenko is moved secretly to a nursing home, while Locklin stumbles onto the hideout of the gang behind the killings. He is captured along with Julia Jackson, niece of Superintendent John Harrington. Locklin is tortured to reveal Dushenko's hiding place but escapes in time to avert Duskenko's murder at the hands of the gang's hired-killer---a midget who is aided by a monkey.

An old fashioned British cold war spy movie
27 October 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews



This very British film was a "B" picture given headlines because of the title song which was a massive hit in both the Uk and in the States.

Only read below if you want to know about The little red monkey.

The little red monkey was in fact a very very small/tiny adult russian spy who because of his size could enter small areas thought safe agains five foot plus size humans.

He was only called "The Midget" in the film and he was played by Leonard franks.

This was the basis of the movie.

If you ever get to watch this film, do not expect too much and you will not be disappionted.

The music is freely on line to download from various sites in the UK. Just type in "the little red monkey" into a search engine and up will pop lots of links.
