Double Confession is a 1950 British crime film directed by Ken Annakin and starring Derek Farr, Joan Hopkins, Peter Lorre and William Hartnell. The screenplay, written by William Templeton, is based on the book All On A Summer's Day by HLV Fletcher, written under the pen name "John Garden".
Jim Medway (Farr) visits his ex-wife only to discover that she has been murdered. But what is the motive and who did it?
Double Confession was missing from the BFI National Archive, and is listed as one of the British Film Institute's "75 Most Wanted" lost films. In February 2013 a restored edition was released on DVD by Renown Pictures in the UK.
