MR. DENNING DRIVES NORTH - John Mills, Phyllis Calvert [1952]



Adapted by Alec Coppel from his own novel, it focuses on the trials and tribulations of Tom Denning. A well-to-do man, who accidentally kills Mados, his daughter's crooked boyfriend, who had attempted to blackmail him.

Matters are further complicated, however, when Denning conceals Mados's corpse, and it disappears.

An edgy fast paced crime thriller from the golden age of British cinema.
