Canadian/British Atmospheric Thriller
12 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Economically shot on a low budget by Beaconsfield Studios this film has curiosity value for two small reasons; it was the first speaking role by Sean Connery and one of the earliest films to feature a helicopter (Bell 47 CF-AKL). Interestingly one of the stars of the film (Robert Beatty) also shared a plot featuring a later version of the same helicopter type in the film "Where Eagles Dare".

It is a mildly atmospheric B movie which due to it's venerable age (it reaches it's half centenary in 2007) provides an interesting and nostalgic look at Canadian/British class values and aside from the aforementioned flying object is refreshingly free of UFO's, little green men or giant spiders as was the fashion in 1950 b-movies.
