Penny and the Pownall Case


Slim Hand
Highbury Productions
Production Company

Silly Adventures of Jane type adventure with model getting tangled up with Nazi war criminals.

Basically a short film made as a sort of testing ground for Rank Charm school graduates, but Evans is quite charming and it is amusing to watch Christopher Lee in his first starring role, humble as it is, not to mention a brunette Diana Dors and Tardises all over the London suburbs.
