During his six months in jail Roy has written a letter every week to his wife, but his mother-in-law has torn them up, to prevent her daughter from reading them. She has also convinced Ann to divorce. Roy rents a room in London, and then goes to Ann's house to visit her and their son. The mother-in-law tells him to stay away, because Ann and Ted don't want to see him anymore. In his despair Roy involves an old sweetheart in a plan to kidnap Ted.

As Timely Now as When It Was Made
4 May 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The basic story is of a man,denied access to his son,through circumstances,abducts him.I heard such a story yesterday so as they say nothing changes.The boy in question in this film is Denis Waterman making the first appearance in a career which now spans over half a century.The plot is quite neat and well told.It shows just how well the Danzigers had been able to adapt to the prevailing circumstances and turn out suspenseful films like this and turn a profit.It is a great shame that this type of film is no longer made.For railway enthusiasts there are glimpses of steam trains and also the old Euston Station before it was demolished.There are good performances all around.
