A terrific post-war thriller starring Trevor Howard as Clem Morgan, a
hard-bitten ex-RAF pilot drawn into a Soho blackmarket gang led by the
sinister Narcy (Griffith Jones) and his even more sinister mother.
Framed for murder, Clem breaks out of Dartmoor and heads for London,
bent on revenge. The film teeters on the edge of noir, is surprisingly
tough and sports expressionist flourishes.
