A rare chance to revisit the golden era of cinema with an introduction by Professor Roger Shannon.

A pair of London hoodlums, rejected by the established criminal set, execute a spate of robberies which finally results in the death of a policeman. Produced by Michael Balcon and featuring PC George Dixon (named after his school George Dixon High).

A rare screening providing the chance to revisit the golden era of cinema and look back at actors Jack Warner and Dirk Bogarde. Professor Roger Shannon will be providing a talk prior to the screening which will provide a thorough insight into the work of producer Sir Michael Balcon and his contribution to the British film industry.
