Pilot's wife is drawn into espionage web when her husband's plane goes down
22 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Echo of Diana" is quite a good little spy-noir, although it does have some unexplained action. Dermot Walsh, who only appears briefly at the end, is a pilot whose plane goes down in Asia Minor. He's reported dead. His wife, Betty McDowall, is helped along throughout by her close friend, Clare Owen. Owen takes the lead in some instances.

Espionage and an espionage ring are involved. Some strange things begin to happen. McDowall soon learns from a diplomat of an embassy of the crash region that certain belongings of her husband have been returned, but they turn out not to be his. An announcement (referring to Diana) appears in the newspaper that suggests knowledge of Walsh's death before he crashed. A rather sly journalist (Vincent Ball) appears who wants to write an article on Walsh. Owen is accosted by a strange man in her parking garage. The diplomat early in the story informs McDowall that her husband is in fact alive and that she can secretly go to see him if she keeps her travel a secret. She agrees. Ball begins to work with Geoffrey Toone, who is in a branch of Scotland Yard, and Owen is called in to see Toone (and Ball) after her apartment is tossed. Ball is there because his apartment too was ransacked.

Everything is taken care of in just over 59 minutes. The style of the film is straight-ahead story-telling without heavy melodramatics. Emotion is present but its restraint shows through. There is politeness and coolness. There's no in your face violence. The style lends itself to a certain amount of suspenseful tension, even if some aspects are fairly predictable.

Definitely recommended for fans of these British 1-hour movies. This one is not boring and moves right along with engaging action and acting.
