Product Description

They discover that the group's next act of destruction is 'the big one' - an attack on a power station.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Mono ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: High Treason is a British espionage thriller filmed in the style of such American "docudramas" as The House on 92nd Street. Enemy saboteurs infiltrate the industrial suburbs of London, intending to plant high-powered bombs at several factory sites. Their motivation is to cripple the British economy and enable subversive forces to insinuate themselves in the government. The saboteurs are thwarted not by the traditional counterintelligence agents but by workaday London police officers. Director Roy Boulting also cowrote the screenplay of High Treason, which moves swiftly enough for its plot inconsistencies to be ignored. ...High Treason

A gripping thriller set in the evolving "cold war period": a brew of espionage and fanatical idealism resulting in some violent scenes, including industrial sabotage. It is interesting to see that versatile actor, Kenneth Griffith, playing a redeemable character role for a change. Joan Hickson, as his mother, is also given a serious part that does her justice, along with a good supporting cast. The plot is complex and warrants repeated watching. Good film and sound quality throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 5 Star British Gem! 9 Nov 2013
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't give that many 5 stars but this 1951 Rank film directed by Roy Boulting deserves them. Fast paced and still perhaps strangely topical, the film tells how the Police and Secret Service Agencies foil a "Communist" plot to destroy Battersea Power Staion. Well cast with actors in roles unusual for most of them-Liam Redmond top billed as the Policeman in charge, Kenneth Griffith as a reluctant conspirator, Mary Morris, Joan Hickson in one of her best straight roles, and, I even saw Marianne Stone!! The plot and tension never really lets up and the climax is cleverly filmed. All in all 90' of pleasure. An excellent B/W 4.3 Print, and a fair price all help. Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrills from the fearful Fifties 8 Jan 2014
By CPyrate
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An exciting, English-made Cold War thriller, playing on fears of a "Fifth Column" at large in Britain at the time;almost a 1951 take on that classic bit of WW2 propaganda "Went The Day Well?" Decent acting and great location filming, a must for fans of British films of the Fifties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Golden Oldie 23 Dec 2013
By Oliver
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When the video went, I lost a lot of the old movies I grew up with. This probably only went out as a B movie but in my mind is ranked higher. Good actors and a great story, with good over coming evil. I can watch this time and time again and I think if you are a lover of this kind of film, you too will watch it again and again.
