I love these sort of films,1950s/1960s British crime films.
Some are well known but this one is fairly obscure,despite the well known director and cast.
So I was glad when I caught this on a film channel.
It has its faults,mainly sometimes unrealistic,but it is well made and has a great cast.
10 years after this film was made the British film industry was almost dead,why?
I think because of tv and the idea that British films were dull,some were but some were great.
