Two brothers become involved with criminals planning a major art heist, only to be framed by them for the theft.
The film is now available on dvd, having been released by Renown Pictures in 2013.
The Radio Times wrote, "director John Gilling tries to push this tale of art theft and murder along at a decent pace, but spotting who framed Nichol's brother is hardly taxing."; while Sky Movies noted a "standard British thick-ear thriller of the Fifties...Vigorous playing from a solid cast that includes Clifford Evans and Veronica Hurst sees the ingenuous story through."
