In the introduction to the main filmography, we stated that only films described in their credits as Hammer productions would be eligible for inclusion. Well, this film is an exception we shall be making to that rule. The reasons for doing so are two-fold:- (a) it is included in all lists of Hammer Films, and (b) Falcon was a subsidiary of Hammer.

Actor Ronald Lewis also starred in Hammer’s “Taste of Fear” (1961) and “The Brigand of Kandahar” (1965).

Bernard Braden was, like his wife Barbara Kelly, more well known as a TV personality than an actor and was host of programmes such as “Criss Cross Quiz” and “On the Braden Beat” in the 1960s. Another of his acting roles was also for director Val Guest in the documentary-style sci-fi thriller “The Day the Earth Caught Fire” (1961).
