The Hi-Jackers is a 1963 British crime thriller film written and directed by Jim O'Connolly. It stars Antony Booth and Jacqueline Ellis.[1] It was shot in black and white.


Long-distance lorry driver Terry (Anthony Booth) meets Shirley (Jacqueline Ellis) at a trucker's cafe and gives her a lift. His truck, carrying a valuable shipment of whisky, is then hijacked under cover of a fake road accident. But who tipped off the hi-jackers about the route Terry would take? Police Inspector Grayson (Patrick Cargill) investigates.


Critical reception[edit]

The Radio Times wrote, "identifying the familiar British faces - Anthony Booth (Tony Blair's father-in-law), Patrick Cargill, Glynn Edwards - is the main point of interest in this very dated movie." [2]
