Directed by
Ralph L. Thomas

Kenneth More stars in this, the second film adaptation of John Buchan's ripping espionage yarn. In fact, it's more than a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's original 1935 flick, played for light-hearted excitement rather than heavy suspense. It more than fulfils its ambition as More gamely romps around the Scottish countryside in a 48-hour dash to save the universe by cracking an international plot to smuggle defence plans out of Britain.
