1955 | 12 | 90 min­utes | £ 9.99 ( DVD) This ’ 50s Bri­tish B- movie from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang di­rec­tor Ken Hughes fea­tures a nu­clear sci­en­tist who, thanks to ra­dioac­tiv­ity, now ex­ists seven and a half seconds ahead in time, and so an­swers ques­tions be­fore they are asked. Not a great deal is made of this in­ter­est­ing plot de­vice, though – the film is re­ally a Cold War in­dus­trial es­pi­onage thriller with just a touch of sci- fi. Though that’s dis­ap­point­ing, it does fea­ture some lively per­for­mances and de­cent twists.
