Breaking point

A 1961 Butchers production which was made at Walton Studios. Peter Reynolds plays a “ne`er do well” nephew of a successful printing company owner. His marriage to Joanna Dunham – who went on to star in the series Van Der Valk – is on the rocks. His work at the printing firm is rather mundane until a small Eastern state “Lalvador”, wanting plates made for their currency, is the target of hostile forces. Reynolds is set up by the spies, meanwhile Dermot Walsh, of “Richard The Lionheart” fame, closes in on Reynold`s wife…

Man From Tangier

Our action starts in Tangie with a murder and robbery. Voss (Marti Benson), one of the master
crooks, is after the thief who stole the plates and Michele (Lisa Gastoni), his unwilling moll, is sent to retrieve them – enter Collins, (Robert Hutton) an American stunt man who whilst having a haircut has his coat accidentally switched which puts him right in the middle of the intrigue. Good shots of Victoria station, Humber Hawks etc. The story moves at a good pace and the picture and sound are of good quality.
