Details

This intriguing wartime thriller adapts Vernon Sylvaine's stage play imagining a Nazi plot to kidnap Winston Churchill a plotline famously revisited more than three decades later in The Eagle Has Landed. Blending keen suspense and defiant humour in equal measure, Warn That Man sees "professional Cockney" and box office favourite Gordon Harker starring alongside Canadian-born Raymond Lovell and British film stalwart Finlay Currie. Made in 1943, the film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

At the height of World War II, the Germans discover that a certain British personage is to stay at the country house of Lord Buckley. They devise a plan whereby they will kidnap the real Lord Buckley, and send to England an actor who will masquerade, lie in wait for the visitor with a number of gunmen, and take him back to Germany...
