House of Secrets

House of Secrets

House of Secretsis a 1956 British crime thriller film directed by Guy Green and starring Michael Craig, Anton Diffring and Gérard Oury. It was filmed in Technicolor and VistaVision. It was shot at Pinewood Studios near London and on location in Paris and Marseille. The film's sets were designed by the art director Alex Vetchinsky while the costumes were by Julie Harris.


The film, based on the novel Storm Over Paris by Sterling Noel, follows a man who is sent undercover to infiltrate an international crime organization planning to inundate the UK with huge amounts of near perfect forged UK Bank Notes to damage the UK Economy. In this very well-made Glossy Colourful British Film Michael Craig (Larry Ellis) is similar to an early James Bond character. The only thing which might spoil it for some viewers is the slightly abrupt ending. Beautifully photographed entirely in Paris, France.
