A fairly laughable attempt by the British film industry to outdo Fritz Lang's masterpiece METROPOLIS, HIGH TREASON is badly produced, written, and directed. Set in 1940, the film presents the world as a high-tech playground dominated by television, massive skyscrapers, and rooftop airplane

taxis. By 1940, the Earth has been split into two rival segments: United Europe (under British rule of course) and United America. This leads to enough tension to start WW II, but a third party, the Peace League (run mainly by women) intervenes and prevents catastrophe by assassinating the leader

of United Europe.
