About this deal

Please do not forward additional screen captures to us but bring the detail to our attention, for we do, and are, 're-addressing' these older entries as time allows. The Monthly Film Bulletin wrote: "A sort of poor man's James Bond exercise, feebly directed in sub- Hitchcock manner.

Maggie deliberately reads the road sign incorrectly and makes them walk in the opposite direction to where they should be going. Images submitted must be in Landscape orientation, as would be seen on the cinema screen, not Portrait. Marek has "sold" Garrett to the Russians for his knowledge and has arranged for a submarine to come before dawn to take him away. Carmichael is a physicist who supposedly possesses a great talent which is desirable by all cold war players. When he goes outside and says this to a cabby, the cabby suggests "King’s Square" in Chelsea, which they drive to.It is revealed that this was all an elaborate trap to trick Garrett to "voluntarily" come to this hotel - he has been used like a pawn in a chess game. David Garrett is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Cambridge, working on tracking Russian rocket launches. Not exactly the Ministry of Defence, this is the entrance to the Anatomy Building of University College London on Gower Street.

The story concerns a chemist (Ian Carmichael) who falls for a girl (Janet Munro), but she traps him to a seaside hideaway where he is to be shanghaied and sold to a foreign power. At that time I hadn’t seen many Endfield films, although I had a certain interest in the Blacklisted filmmakers. As David is driven away, he looks back to see two agents (Monty Warren and Cyril Cross) speaking with Melnicker. Garrett and Richter fight, and Richter loses and goes over the side of the cliff to his apparent death. It was one of several British films released in 1964 after spending well over a year on the shelf - others included "The Leather Boys", "Ladies Who Do" and "The Comedy Man".The difference being that there is no case of mistaken identity and being an astrophysicist, Carmichael does not need to rely on dumb luck to get himself out of a situation. Curt Jurgens pops up for the finale in a trial run for his Bond villain role and Janet Munro is quite lovely. We are aware that there are films on the site that were added when the criteria for the inclusion of locations was very different from today and, as a result, there may be scenes missing from some productions.

There are shades of Alfred Hitchcock’s man on the run tales here (especially The 39 Steps, which the basic structure loosely resembles), sharing a similar sense of wry humour that runs throughout the story, an ever-so-slightly winking sensibility enhanced by the amount of comedy actors making up the supporting cast. David enters the building for his interview where Major McPherson questions him about his association with Dr.They head down to the shore, where Garrett finds that he cannot identify the correct key to unlock a small motorboat. They find the life jackets have been attached to trousers, and that Garrett and Maggie faked the attempt for the island. The customary paraphernalia of sinister men in raincoats, thugs in dark glasses, and stern old ladies on trains, is here manipulated flatly and without effect; intriguing possibilities (like the black knight) are started up, then made nothing of; and the dénouement, after a lengthy but unconvincing disquisition from Curt Jurgens explaining how his whole plot was arranged like a chess game, is crammed into about forty seconds flat. Maggie then says she has to leave and Garrett leaves alone after copying down Maggie's phone number.
