In this heavy-hitting crime drama, Morgan plays a newly released convict who is anxious to get back into action. But this is much easier said than done, so he opens up a photography studio that serves is a front for pornographic and blackmail activities. Morgan runs into trouble with

rival gangster Corbett, and bitter warfare erupts. Scotland Yard tracks down Morgan by having Court go undercover as a model, infiltrating the ex-con's set-up. Pleasance plays the alcoholic photographer whose studio Morgan uses for his headquarters. The performances are all strong and believable,

and fast-paced direction helps to gloss over some of the inadequacies in the predictable script.
