About this deal

Needless to say it doesn't quite have the pizzazz of Hitchcock's masterpiece, but it does display Munro's willingness to disrobe on camera, something which I am sure The Master would have appreciated. Maggie then says she has to leave and Garrett leaves alone after copying down Maggie's phone number. The Monthly Film Bulletin wrote: "A sort of poor man's James Bond exercise, feebly directed in sub- Hitchcock manner.

Curt Jurgens pops up for the finale in a trial run for his Bond villain role and Janet Munro is quite lovely. In reality, of course, this is much lighter and at best a comedy thriller in the genre of 'The 39 Steps'; the similarities continue when we are presented with a buttoned-up emotionally repressed academic (Carmichael) paired with a free-spirited, slightly wacky and alluringly beautiful spirit (Janet Munro). The Britannia public house in the background stands at the corner of Bard Road and Latimer Road W10 and was demolished to make way for the West Cross Route.

Maggie tells Garrett to meet her at the train station, where she convinces him to board the train with her. Images submitted must be in Landscape orientation, as would be seen on the cinema screen, not Portrait.

The random occurrences circumvent this intention and before we know it he has met Janet Munro and is in Yorkshire. They find the life jackets have been attached to trousers, and that Garrett and Maggie faked the attempt for the island. Anthony Spencer identifies this as the Grand Union Canal with Grove Bridge in the background adding that the road over the bridge leads to The Grove, the former seat of the Earls of Clarendon.They are chased around in the train until Maggie pulls the emergency stop cord and she and Garrett jump off the train. If you have any information regarding this production, the locations or, even better, some comparison shots please contact us.

I remember him saying Zulu was the greatest film ever made…it might have been said partly tongue in cheek, but it was one of his favourite films.As David is driven away, he looks back to see two agents (Monty Warren and Cyril Cross) speaking with Melnicker. Imagine North by Northwest but with Ian Carmichael substituted for Cary Grant, Janet Munro for Eva-Marie Saint, Curt Jurgens for James Mason, a canal boat instead of a crop sprayer and cliffs along the coast of Yorkshire instead of Mount Rushmore. Sadly, the decidedly naff title did summarise and embody the film only too well, both as regards final product and as a description of the plot.
