Directed by Seth Holt (The Nanny and Blood From The Mummy’s Tomb), Nowhere To Go is a stylish, grimy tale of deception and betrayal. A rare, late excursion into film noir for Ealing Studios, scripted by first-time director Holt and critic Ken Tynan. This is the digitally remastered, previously unreleased original 100 minute version of the film.
Paul Gregory (George Nader, Robot Monster) is a thief and conman. He has come to London from Canada in order to rob Harriet Jefferson (Bessie Love, The Lost World) of her rare coin collection. Having sold the coins, he puts the money in a safe deposit box and waits to be arrested, expecting to be out in five years. Sentenced instead to ten years, Gregory breaks out of prison with the help of Victor Sloane (Bernard Lee, The Third Man, Dr, No, Goldfinger, From Russia with Love), planning to collect the money then leave the country. A series of accidents and double-crosses sends Gregory spinning through London’s criminal underworld, before he ends up on the run in the Welsh countryside with socialite Bridget Howard (Maggie Smith, TV’s Downton Abbey, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie).

Watch out from the start to catch the original British Board of Film Censors classification card, then an exceptionally fierce-looking MGM lion ('George') who looks nothing like the tamer beast ('Leo') seen in the logo today. The film itself opens with the protagonist's explosive prison break, during which barely one word of dialogue is spoken for a whole 10 minutes (an approach perhaps inspired by the 1955 heist classic 'Rififi'). Throughout 'Nowhere to Go', first-time director Holt provides eye-catching long takes and deep-focus compositions.
Unfortunately there's at least one scene when the screenplay relies on egregious coincidence. Marks are also deducted for the paucity of bonus features: just a 13-minute 'making of', no trailer or booklet. It's a shame Maggie Smith couldn't be persuaded to provide an interview for this, her first credited role.
The film’s leisurely pace (which particularly takes hold during its second half) is evident from what is an impressive, almost Leone-like, opening jailbreak sequence. Now, effectively 'on the run’, Holt does a good job in depicting the 'net closing in’ on Gregory (and Sloane) as (Hitchcock-like) chance events appear to be conspiring against him, and the trust in his relationship with his 'partner’ is eroded. Acting-wise, Nader does a reasonably good job – perhaps a little too smooth, but with a nice veneer of droll sarcasm – whilst Lee is (as ever) dependable. In her first credited screen role, Maggie Smith is also impressive as the offbeat ('Ciao’) 'rich young thing’, Bridget Howard who Gregory keeps bumping into and who offers the fugitive potential refuge – he having been shunned by his fellow underworld mobsters (featuring an almost unrecognisable Harry H Corbett in an early cameo).Read more ›
