Scarlet Thread

Scarlet Thread

This 1951 Nettlefold Production was directed by top British director Lewis Gilbert who directed Alfie,
Shirley Valentine, Moonraker, Sink The Bismark and Reach for the Sky as well as many others...

Scarlet Thread was one of his earliest works and he displays his obvious talent in this production.

Laurence Harvey stars as a small time crook looking for the high life and Sydney Tafler as an educated gang boss living the high life - both take part in a robbery that goes wrong.

Good scenes of Cambridge and supporting cast Harry Fowler, Kathleen Bryon and “good time girl” Dora Bryan make for an enjoyable British crime drama.
