Most lovers of this gripping tale of espionage and a guy caught up in a situation he doesn't understand tend to go for Hitch's version with Robert Donat? But I much prefer this fifties setting and the everyman hero of Kenneth More, a character actor who wears his roles like warm slippers, so comfortable! He convinces that his plight of a spy conspiracy is real as is his trek across Scotland using real settings rather than studio set-ups.
