English scientist Professor Willingdon (Barry Jones, Brigadoon) runs away from a research center with an atomic bomb. In a letter sent to the British Prime Minister, he threatens to blow up the center of London if the government doesn’t stop stockpiling nuclear warheads. Special agents from Scotland Yard, led by Superintendent Folland (André Morell, The Frightened Bride), try to stop him with help from the scientist’s assistant and future son-in-law. Beautifully shot by the great Gilbert Taylor (Star Wars, Repulsion) and directed, edited and produced by John Boulting (Brighton Rock) and Roy Boulting (Run for the Sun), who also co-wrote the screenplay with Frank Harvey (I’m All Right Jack).
