This movie was made and released about two years after Jon Cleary's novel 'The High Commissioner' was first published in 1966. It was the first book in Cleary's Scobie Malone series and was the book that introduced the Sydney detective hero character. In this movie though, the character is a policeman from the Australian outback. The book series has run to twenty novels, the final one being first published in 2004. See more »

Far from great but it does pass a couple of hours entertainingly enough
Not terrible but not good either. "Nobody Runs Forever" is a 1968 British thriller involving international politics and murder in a reasonably tortuous plot. It's also a Betty Box/Ralph Thomas picture which means it was never likely to set the world on fire; workmanlike is about the best you can say for it. What distinguishes it is the cast. The usually reliable Rod Taylor is the Australian policeman sent to London to arrest Christopher Plummer's Australian High Commissioner for the murder of his first wife and finding, when he gets there, that Plummer isn't the villian he's been painted. Lilli Palmer is Plummer's current wife. (she's the best thing in the picture), Camilla Sparv is his secretary and Daliah Lavi, a very fatale femme. Franchot Tone even pops in for a cameo appearance as does an uncredited Leo McKern. It's not particularly exciting and it is rather far-fetched and it will never rank in any list of decent conspiracy thrillers but at least it passes an entertaining couple of hours.
