Track the Man Down is a 1955 British drama film written by Paul Erickson and directed by R.G. Springsteen.

The melodramatic crime caper centers on a robbery at a greyhound racetrack that results in the unintentional murder of a guard. The perpetrator leaves the loot with his girl friend, commandeers a motorcoach bound for Southampton, and holds hostage its diverse array of passengers, including an American newspaper reporter and the girl friend's resourceful sister.

The film, the second made by Republic Pictures' UK production company, makes good use of London's Victoria Station and locations along the banks of the River Thames.
