08 Jun Young and Innocent
Adapted from the Josephine Tey novel “A Shilling for Candles,” this smooth thriller stars Derrick De Marney as Robert Tisdall, an innocent man on the run for a murder he didn’t commit. Aided by young and beautiful Erica Burgoyne, a police constable’s daughter, Tisdall flees to the isolated countryside of Cornwall in search of the real killer. As the law closes in on the pair, Tisdall and Erica finally locate a witness who can identify the murderer. A car chase and a harrowing coalmine cave-in lead up to the film’s remarkably suspenseful climax as the fugitives comb a crowded hotel ballroom for the man with “twitching eyes”.
