"M" Wrongly Accused of Murder
27 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Polite note to user Robert J Maxwell of New Mexico.No sir, Bernard Lee was not "Q" but "M" from the first Bond film "Dr No" of 1962."Q" was played by Welsh actor Desmond Llewlynn.Now that's cleared up, I too received this DVD from an internet site I recently discovered and which I can heartily recommend: "myrarefilms.co.uk".

During the film I was mentally running through the mathematics of the age of Van Johnson's character.In the segment set during the Liverpool blitz of 1941 he was 10 years old.Move forward to 1959 (after he had been shipped off to the States to explain his American accent) which is 18 years later (the date of this film) and he would therefore be 28.There is no way Van Johnson looked this age, at best more like 35.Maybe his character aged prematurely!That said this is a good suspense film that keeps you guessing until segment 20/20 when the real murderer is revealed and I rated it worthy of 7/10.
