    When childhood friends and army comrades Dave Robinson (Bill Rowbotham) and Ted Peters (Richard Attenborough) return home from WWII, they make very different choices for their new civvy lives.

    Ted gets an honest job as a taxi driver, and saves for his wedding to childhood sweetheart Joy (Sheila Sim). Dave however, wants easy cash and soon becomes involved with a gang.

    “This well-paced, rather violent film…was a very pleasant surprise.” – Film Noir of the Week.

    When Dave runs into money troubles with the mob boss, a henchman is sent to finish him off. Stumbling from his gun wounds, he seeks shelter in the back of Ted’s empty taxi and collapses, lifeless.

    Suspicions fly as Scotland Yard investigate the murder. The police suspect Dave’s underworld connections. The mob suspects that Ted knows their guilt. And Ted himself suspects who the real killer might be…

    Set in London, this riveting crime drama has its roots firmly in the American gangster films of the 1930s – a must watch for genre lovers.
