PC Don Ross suspects that a gang of lorry hijackers, operating from a transport café, is behind a series of vehicle thefts. When his suspicions are dismissed by his superiors, Ross decides to conduct his own undercover investigation, and sets out to collect vital evidence that could convict the gang…
Gerry Anderson’s directorial debut is very entertaining and both George Murcell and Ferdy Mayne turn in performances worth watching. In one scene Anthony Oliver leaps onto the side of a speeding car and hangs on as it careers down the main road – a hero of the British Police Force!
This was the only feature-length production to be made by AP Films which was co-founded by the legendary puppet pioneer in 1957. Released in 1960 between the making of Four Feather Falls and Supercar, Crossroads to Crime features the talents of several of Anderson’s later Supermarionation collaborators, including George Murcell, David Graham, Anderson’s future wife Sylvia and Barry Gray, whose iconic themes famously complemented the Supermarionation series of the 1960s. The film negative was edited in the 1960s to replace the original titles with ones for the Edgar Wallace Mystery series and it is from these film elements that this brand-new transfer has been made. The original titles are included as a separate special feature.
