Time Is My Enemy is a 1954 British crime film directed by Don Chaffey. It stars Dennis Price and Renée Asherson.[2][3]


Small-time crook Radley (Dennis Price) returns after a long absence to discover his wife Barbara (Renee Asherson) has remarried, believing him killed in the Blitz. Finding her happily married to wealthy publisher John Everton (Patrick Barr), Radley begins blackmailing Barbara to keep their previous marriage quiet. When Radley kills a jeweller in a robbery, he is blackmailed by his roommate, so in turn blackmails Barbara for larger amounts. When she arrives at Radley's flat to pay the final instalment, he provokes her into shooting him. After surrendering herself to the police, Barbara discovers that all is not as it seems, Radley is wanted for more than one murder; and the police begin to question whether Radley is really dead after all.
