Critics reviews

The set’s true noir find is The October Man (47), an excruciatingly effective thriller starring John Mills as a brain-trauma survivor pushed to breaking point when accused of killing a fellow resident (Kay Walsh) of a shabby-genteel hotel. Screenwriter Eric Ambler satirizes petit bourgeois mores and gives the never-better Mills a touching romance with Joan Greenwood.
