Powell and Pressburger regular David Farrar plays a WWII bomb expert in constant pain from an amputated leg who self-medicates with booze. Can he solve the mystery of the Nazi booby trap killing his fellow Englishmen? Can he save his relationship with his long-suffering girl (fellow P&P regular Kathleen Byron)? Can he preserve his sanity? An idiosyncratic but undersung film. – Lee Gardner

1949 Dir. Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. 1.33:1 B&W dcp 107 min.
