Tautly Directed Little Thriller
1 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

The second in the series of Scotland Yard mysteries, directed once again by Ken Hughes, this one involves moving the action from Britain to France as well as a dream-sequence. There is probably a little too much plot-narration for a 25-minute thriller, but the action lurches headlong to a violent and unexpected denouement. Worth the time to watch.
