| Accident at the Crossroads
A fascinating premise containing some snappy one-liners but suffering from very slapdash and cheap-seeming execution. (I was, for example - ANTI-SPOILER COMING: - expecting the fact that Sebastian Shaw was skilfully but visibly made up to look about twenty years older than his actual age of 35 pointed to some final twist, but this proved not to be the case.)

Creator of a superweapon with which his declared intention is to destabilise the current European world order, the late unlamented Karl Zaroff (Meinhart Maur) is portrayed as an arrogant skunk lights years away from the visionary arms manufacturer and model employer Andrew Undershaft in 'Major Barbara', and his killer seems to have being doing the world a service rather than being the villain the denouement portrays him as; so from the looks of this movie E.P.Thorne's original novel should be worth investigating.
