When ex-RAF officer turned petty crook Clem (Trevor Howard) is fitted up for murder by villainous spiv Narcy, only the love and loyalty of Sally (Sally Gray) stands between him and certain death … but whose certain death? At last, it is time to relish the finest British noir you’ve never seen. Part poetic realism, part expressionist nightmare, Cavalcanti’s dark-lane poetry still bristles with sadism, tenderness and unbridled style.

A restoration by the BFI National Archive with funding provided by The Film Foundation.
