When this movie first appeared, the direction was credited to Victor Hanbury
, a real-life Producer, who only agreed to take the credit when the actual Director, the blacklisted Joseph Losey
, insisted that this would be a great help to him, as he needed the work. Although several versions of this movie, including the DVD, still credit Hanbury, there are prints where Losey is credited under his own name. The first several times it was shown on British television, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Losey had the credit. See more
