OK courtroom drama
29 December 2007 | by gordonl56See all my reviews

Tony Qualye plays an American scientist brought to Britain to help the C.I.A. There is a defecting East block scientist they want him to debrief. The commies are less than amused and set Qualye up for a murder. The police catch him fleeing the country and charge him with murder. All he says is that he is not guilty and nothing else. His lawyer, Anna Neagle, can not get Qualye to help in his defense. It seems that Quayle was given a secret formula to a killer virus by the defector. He can not clear himself without giving away the dangerous formula. He would rather hang than let it fall into the wrong hands. Neagle manages to prove the killing was a set up and the red agents are grabbed up. OK time-waster from the husband wife team of Neagle and Herbert Wilcox..(Wait till you see Zsa Zsa Gabor as a C.I.A. agent).
