Part of “The British Film” Collection
Patrick Barr and Scotland Yard stalwart Russell Napier star in this sci-fi flavoured mid-fifties thriller, a rarely seen early feature by Ken Hughes – later to score box-office hits with “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and the BAFTA-nominated “The Trials of Oscar Wilde”.

After examining him on the ‘brain machine’, Philippa is alarmed to find the results are identical to those of Jarrit…
