Venetian Bird

The Assassin

1953

Ralph Thomas
Director

British insurance sleuth hopes to track down elusive war here, but becomes embroiled in an assassination scheme.

Convoluted little thriller with nice location work, impressive stuntwork by the stars and dodgy Italian accents. Unexpected sort of film from this director and quite efficient but still a ways from Hitchcock.

Marianne Stone is reputed to be in the movie, but I see no sign of her.
