Double Alibi is a 1937 British crime film directed by David MacDonald and starring Ernest Sefton, John Warwick and Linden Travers. It was made at Wembley Studios as a quota quickie by the British subsidiary of the Hollywood studio Fox.[1]


The seemingly watertight alibi of a criminal is wrecked by the testimony of a woman connected with a rival gang.
