The Secret is an odd little indie feature from mid 50s Britain. It stars Sam Wanamaker, still a relative newcomer to the UK, and a pre-Hammer Andre Morell in a tale of diamond smuggling set in post-war Brighton. The film was shot attractively in Eastmancolor by the always reliable Jack Asher, and the period portrait of that seaside resort is worth the price of admission alone. The film was apparently shot at 'Brighton Film Studio', whatever that was...I haven't seen any other films sporting that credit. Add in a nice turn by Harold Berens as wide boy Frank Farmer, and you have an enjoyable if minor crime film.
