Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 1951.
Summary Dan, a sailor and small-time smuggler, is caught trying to take some nylons from his girlfriend through customs at the POOL OF LONDON. Later he meets a man called Vernon who persuades him to smuggle stolen diamonds to Rotterdam. But Vernon does not mention that a watchman has been murdered during the theft of these gems. "*The heist element is well crafted and suspenseful, but the most striking aspect is Dearden's tentative venture into racial politics, with the first interracial relationship in a British film.*" - Carl Daniels, **BFI Screenonline**
