In this excellent, taut chase thriller, a secret service agent, dismissed from the service having failed on a mission, obtains work in a country house. A series of sinister events occur which culminate in a murder hunt over large areas of the north of England. The Clouded Yellow is not merely a melodramatically efficient action piece, but it also resonates with that post-war malaise (especially in Trevor Howard's ex-SIS agent) which gives shading to so many British films of the time.
