Counterspy DVD Cover

This fast-paced comedy thriller stars Dermot Walsh as a mild-mannered young accountant forced to go on the run after unwittingly coming into possession of coveted top-secret plans. Also featuring Bill Travers, Oscar-nominated Hermione Baddeley and an early role for horror queen Hazel Court, Counterspy is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

While perusing the books of an engineering company, fastidious auditor Frank Manning encounters rum goings on when he is approached by a woman who claims she is being blackmailed. She begs him to find certain letters and he eventually agrees. Having obtained the letters, he takes them to a specified address where, to his horror, he finds a man, fully clothed, dead in the bath...
