"Another British b-movie from poverty row specialists-Butcher's Films!"
Another British b-movie from poverty row specialists Butcher's Films. This one is based on a Laurence Meynell novel of the same name. Peter Reynolds plays Eric Winlatter, the shady nephew of a printer and engraver who gets involved with foreign spies who plan to flood an obscure far eastern state called Lalvador, which is sympathetic to western desires, with fake currency in order to bankrupt its economy. The country would then be forced to come to the nation behind the scheme for assistance thus forcing them behind the iron curtain. The plot is not credible thanks to some variable performances and a poor script and director Lance Comfort who churned out a number of these minimal quota-quickies throughout his career fails to generate much in the way of suspense, which he did so well with Tomorrow At Ten one of his more distinguished efforts in this field. Nevertheless, there are more tedious ways to pass an hour or two as it is pacy. But its main point of interest is that the supporting cast includes Joanna Dunham who would later star alongside Barry Foster in the popular 1970's TV series Van Der Valk.
