Storyline

Further humiliation follows for Francis when, having lingered in a bookshop during lunch, he arrives back late at the office just as the first hints of the Suez Crisis are emerging. The man stalking Sylvia turns out to be Harold Atterbow, who plays the Wurlitzer organ in the cinema where she works as an usherette.
