While digging a new subway line in London, a construction crew discovers first: a skeleton, then what they think is an old World War II German missile.

I usually don't comment on another's comment, but that the film lacked "an attractive female interest" had my jaw dropping. Barbara Shelley NOT attractive? She's beautiful and at 34 when this was made, she made being "middle-aged" look like a great goal.
Other than that, the reviewer is right on the money. Great film. Great acting. Great script. Not bad effects overall. AND Barbara Shelley!
