I caught this minor gem many years back on afternoon tv. I was very entertained by the plot of an American Army officer who is stationed in contemporary (late 50's) England, suffers a brain injury that blinds him, and while trying to find the address of a friend enters the wrong flat (still blind), gets thumped on the head by an unknown assailant who promptly takes off, and leaves our hero cured of his blindness--and in the middle of a big crime conspiracy...all in the first ten minutes of the film! Movie buffs may remember this for Michael Caine's bottom-listing in the opening credits(it turns out he has lot more to do with the plot than first apparent. My favorite feature of this is hero Robert Mackenzie( whom you may recognize as the antagonist Gibbons in "Fiend Without A Face") trying very hard --and almost succeeding--in hiding his Scots accent. If you see it in your listings, give it a look.
