The Secret Partner is a 1961 British thriller film directed by Basil Dearden and starring Stewart Granger, Haya Harareet and Bernard Lee.[2] [3]

An executive officer with a record becomes a suspect when money goes missing from the shipping company vault.


Critical reception[edit]

In Allmovie, Eleanor Mannikka called the film a "routine mystery story" ; [4] while in the Radio Times, Allen Eyles noted "an implausible but ingenious British thriller...flashily directed by Basil Dearden...It remains watchable thanks to some skilful characterisation and the strong performances of Stewart Granger as the executive, Norman Bird as the dentist, and Bernard Lee as the dogged, chain-smoking policeman looking forward to retirement." [5]
