Tired old queen at the movies

Green For Danger

ho-dunnit? That's the big question when a murderer works his way through a make shift hospital outside of London during the blitz in Launder & Gilliat's Green For Danger (1946).

Trevor Howard, Alistair Sym and Sally Gray head a cast of top-flight British actors in this adaptation of the famous medical thriller by Christianna Brand. The plot is intricate, the dialogue amusing, the acting brilliant and the dénouement a complete surprise. In a genre that rarely comes off on screen, Green For Danger remains a mystery that truly is, until the very end.
