Warn That Man

War 1943 82 mins
Director: Lawrence Huntington
A cabal of vicious Nazi agents are pitted against a gang of plucky Brits in this exciting wartime comedy-thriller set in a remote country house where danger awaits a visiting VIP.
When the Nazis take over a stately home as part of their dastardly scheme to kidnap ‘that man’ (Winston Churchill basically, although never actually named) they didn’t count on a spirited Jean Kent and some friends from putting a patriotic spanner in the works. The inimitable Gordon Harker supplies the comedy relief.
