Storyline

When songwriter Phil Graham is vacationing at a Spanish resort, he runs into old RAF comrade Tony Roscoe, whom he has not seen since the war. Tony is suddenly called back to Britain on emergency business and is not able to drive back to London. Phil volunteers to drive his car back for him and to bring a valuable envelope that Tony has left locked in the hotel safe. After saying goodbye to his old flying buddy, Phil is mugged by thugs while driving Tony's car. Another hotel guest, the enigmatic Mr. Darius, as well as a local police inspector, tell Phil that his old friend has become involved in criminal enterprises since his discharge. When Phil finds him murdered upon returning to Britain, he finds himself in possession of an envelope filled with mysterious microfilm that everyone seems to want.

Quotes

The Scientist: [after Phil takes the microfilm out of the scientist's raincoat] But good gracious, do you mean to say that's been in my pocket all that time? Why give it to me yesterday and take it back today?
Philip Graham: Cause I felt sorry for you. You seemed to be in a tight spot.
The Scientist: Why don't you let me have it today?
Philip Graham: Because I'm in a tight spot now. I think the police suspect that I killed Tony Roscoe.
The Scientist: But what use are the microfilms to you?
Philip Graham: Gonna use them as bait. Maybe I can catch the fellow that's behind all this.

And the viewer's risk too !!

A total waste of time this little film. A sort of espionage, intrigue drama, very talkative, boring, sleepy at the most. I don't know the director and I don't intend to get further in that field. We have already seen tons of this kind of rare crap, where the actors play only to pay their bills. I won't repeat the plot; have already forgotten it.

Only Lloyd Bridges may save this tepid programmer, but for the rest of it, forget the whole thing.

Unfortunately, some European and American productions mixed together in the late fifties and early sixties seldom gave us this kind of features. And we have to deal with it, or watch them while pressing the fast forward button or switch the TV set off.
