London: Anglo-Amalgamated Film Distributors / Zodiac Productions, 1961. Two vintage black-and-white double weight still photographs from the 1961 UK film.

Sean Connery stars as Paddy Damion, the best friend of a gangster who is killed in opposition to the extortionist mob that runs a decrepit area of London. Paddy swears revenge on those responsible for his friend's death, and after a bit of bloodshed, agrees to provide information to the police in exchange for a light sentence.

An early starring role for Sean Connery, who would solidify his status in Hollywood as James Bond, in "Dr. No" (1962), and a gratifying crime drama in the noir style, with a nightclub setting, a femme fatale (Yvonne Romaine), and downbeat ending.

Set in London.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with slight toning, pinholes to one still, and a closed tear to one still.
