This Michael Winner directed film looks into life at Notting Hill, London, then a seedy slum. A down on his luck Joe Beckett (Alfred Lynch) is recruited into crime by Richard Dyce (Eric Portman).

His girlfriend then suddenly changes both hairstyle and clothes from one shot to the next. Maybe the continuity girl had the day off.
