They say you get what you pay for. This is a superior crime thriller notable for the intricacy of its plot, the acid wit of the script and above all the superb moonlit black and white cinematography.

Potential buyers of this cheap Network DVD version should note that the picture, though acceptable, is not as sharp as it might be and the sound is generally poor. There appears to have have been minimal, if any, effort at restoration. Happily, there is at the time of writing a Criterion version soon to be released. I for one will upgrade.

Mr DeRiemer below offers a lengthy review which will ruin any chance of enjoying the ending by revealing the plot. I haven't seen the film so this is hardly a review but I might save others from this man's musings. I have asked Amazon to consider removing it.

Another tour-de-force from the wonderful Alistair Sim and an object lesson in comic timing and delivery of a terrific script from a master. I hesitate to call it his finest hour as he had so many! The plot is splendid and the supporting cast - a who's who of British 1940s cinema - is first rate. I do agree that the quality of the DVD could have been better though.

Green for Danger, is a super1947 Frank Launder/Sidney Gilliat murder film set in England at a small hospital during world war 2. A patient dies and only six people -- two doctors and four nurses -- could have done it.

Great story and really funny at times.

A very stylish and atmospheric film. Mr Sim is at his hight here making a good film a classic. However it's about time it got the TLC it needs and deserves. I'm sure with the VHS, many DVD versions and TV showings it has paid it's due to those companies so now it might be nice of them to get the digital arts busy on it so we can see it as it was new. Then they could do a bluray too.

A classic Alistair Sim film, made in 1946 in black and white, so the film and sound quality are far below what would be acceptable today, but this for me this adds to the period charm. The story is a whodunit mystery, concerning deaths at a south London hospital in late 1944, played out to the background of V1s flying over-head. Sim is the investigating inspector, and his mobile face and droll delivery, make this an entertaining film, especially as the murderers identity is not revealed until the last 5 minutes, with a couple of 'red herrings' thrown in for good measure.

Thrilling.
Keeps you guessing until the end and with a wonderful script, very well acted and with many subtle nuances in the actors performances when crass dialogue would be inserted today. A treat.
Twists and turns like and adder in a hot tin box.

Amusing (in a dry, black comedy way) detective story. The viewer is kept in suspense right up to the cliff-hanger ending and even then there is a final twist in the tale.

One minor criticism is that the sound quality, especially in the opening scenes, is poor and difficult to comprehend. Added to the clipped speaking voices of the actors this meant that some clues were missed in the first viewing. The DVD is not digitally enhanced though the black & white filming always enhances the sense of mystery and suspense.
