Cobbled together plot
5 October 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Here we have a typical fifties B thriller.A parachuted in American actor becomes involved in a spy plot featuring almost every plot device you can think of,with lots of familiar British character actors.Taylor wasn't a star so his inclusion is puzzling.There is a m aguffin of a secret formula.Quite frankly by the end i had rather lost track of exactly what was happening and why.
