This is a real original – a crime drama based on a novel by John Creasey (writing as JJ Marric) that was shot in London by western maestro John Ford, (his only British film) and which barely got noticed at the time. Though produced in glorious Technicolor as Gideon’s Day, only black-and-white prints were shown in America, where the film was known as Gideon of Scotland Yard, though they were later restored. This cynical romp is extremely entertaining and contains a marvellous performance from Jack Hawkins as the Gideon of the title, who is followed by the camera on what must be the busiest day of his life. Tony Sloman

Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London will introduce the film with a 30-minute illustrated talk.
