Warn That Man Blu-ray (1943)
This intriguing wartime thriller adapts Vernon Sylvaine’s stage play imagining a Nazi plot to kidnap Winston Churchill – a plotline famously revisited more than three decades later in The Eagle Has Landed. Blending keen suspense and defiant humour in equal measure Warn That Man sees ‘professional Cockney’ and box office favourite Gordon Harker (The Farmer’s Wife, The Ring) starring alongside Canadian-born Raymond Lovell (49th Parallel, Caesar and Cleopatra) and British film stalwart Finlay Currie (Ben-Hur, Great Expectations).
At the height of World War II the Germans discover that a certain British personage is to stay at the country house of Lord Buckley. They devise a plan whereby they will kidnap the real Lord Buckley and send to England an actor who will masquerade, lie in wait for the visitor with a number of gunmen, and take him back to Germany.
