Flying, diamonds - very 60s
10 May 2019 | by lucyrfSee all my reviews

A disgraced ex-RAF officer, Blake, is well-known in London's underworld. He is talent-spotted by a shady businessman with a cellar full of electronic equipment, an arch secretary with Cleopatra eyeliner and a beehive, and a squad of muscular butlers and chauffeurs. Blake is hired for a hop over the channel with unscheduled stops at disused airfields - there were still a lot of these around. But Hayes (Stanley Meadows) is somehow in cahoots with Blake - can they outwit the sinister Potter? A plot straight out of Gavin Lyall, with lots of atmosphere. Do all these stories involve a louche nightclub with gum-chewing beatniks and a fortune-teller?
