This taut morality play, a twist on the Scrooge story, was one of Hammer's most underrated films and did not find its way into the British cinema until 1963. It is based on a TV play called "The Gold Inside". Director Quentin Lawrence returned to Hammer in 1965 to make "The Secret of Blood Island".
