About time this film was at last on Region 2 dvd! This thrilling adventure hasn't a dull moment, and in fact this is one of the best films of the 1950's.
It's got everything, it's a tensely gripping story (a true story in its important aspects) with an excellent cast, super camerawork, and skilful direction. The colour photography in this beautifully constructed movie is fresh and realistic.
This is one of those expertly-made films that is a satisfying experience for all the family- and an exciting thriller you don't easily forget.
Full of enjoyable detail, "The Man Who Never Was" is a 99-minute film which has hardly dated at all. What a shame the price-tag is currently excessive!
