This Hammer Noir thriller-drama is significant as master director Terence Fisher's first of many films for the company. Also a memorable vehicle for blonde bombshell Diana Dors in her prime. A key film in the company's transition from grade-B quota mysteries and crime films to the science fiction and Gothic horror films in which they began to specialize a few years later.
