Bob Lawrence (Banks) and his crackshot wife, Jill (Best) are holidaying in Switzerland when their French friend, Louis Bernard (Frensay) is gunned down, warning them, with his dying breath, of an imminent diplomatic assasination. To ensure the couple's silence, the conspirators kidnap their daughter (Nova Pilbeam). However, Abbot (Lorre) and his comrades have fatally underestimated British pluck.
This is a suberbly structured thriller whose excellence is aided and abetted by a spirited cast.
