Plot[edit]

After suffering a series of personal setbacks and in desperate need of cash, reporter Bart Crosbie tries to get his old job back. But when he returns to the newspaper offices, Crosbie discovers that his former boss has been murdered. He is then offered money by the killer, a diamond smuggler, to take the murder rap.

Cast[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

The Radio Times called the film a "far-fetched B-movie...Terence Fisher directs with little enthusiasm, but it's worth hanging in there to catch the debut of Tommy Steele";[3] while TV Guide wrote, "it's overplayed and melodramatic but has enough intrigue to make it watchable."[4]
