James Stewart stars as a railroad man hired to secretly carry a payroll despite his suspected connections to outlaws
An escaped convict turns to his married ex-girlfriend for sanctuary in this working-class thriller from the Ealing stable
Director Robert Hamer was rather a toff at Ealing, yet this downbeat movie was one of the first successful attempts at siting a thriller and social drama in a working-class milieu.
Set in amid the (studio-built) squalour of London's East End, the film follows an escaped convict who turns to his ex-girlfriend - now discontentedly married - for help. She shelters him on a boring wet Sunday, but their newfound relationship is as short as his freedom, ending tragically in the Bethnal Green railway yards.
We're used to grittier environments now, and the streets look dusty rather than mean, but the emotions, atmosphere and humour still ring true.
