Nuance was not Donald Wolfit's strong suit, but he had presence and power in spades. He totally dominates this story with a bluster and conviction that keeps an uninspiring tale of the hunt for a Second World War traitor from falling flat on its face. As he showed in Operation Amsterdam, writer/director Michael McCarthy had a splendid sense of place, but no talent whatsoever for generating and sustaining suspense. It was a smart move casting Wolfit, Christopher Lee and Anton Diffring as a trio of shifty-looking suspects, but it all too quickly becomes clear in which direction the finger is pointing.
