Synopsis

Alistair Sim plays a mild, innocuous little watchmaker who spends his off-hours as a professional assassin. His target is windbag cabinet member Huntley. After various misfire attempts, Sim plants a bomb in a small radio and waits for the tube to warm up—but the authorities by now are on to him.
