In what was to be Hay's final film before his death, Johns is a forger released from prison who is determined to kill everyone responsible for sending him there. Hay is the altogether unprofessional barrister who had defended Johns, thus being last on the hit list. The film climaxes in an

exciting chase as Hay and a bumbling lawyer pal, Hulbert, are chased across the face of London's famed Big Ben by the vengeance-crazed Johns. This black-humored farce moves with great agility, though Hay's performance is overshadowed by Hulbert and Johns. The script, cowritten by John Dighton, is

sort of a structural foreshadowing of his KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS (1949).
