Veteran screenwriter and director Sinclair Hill captured the unease of a world on the brink of war in this Hitchcockian tale of sabotage and intrigue in the international arms trade. A compelling pre-war thriller, Midnight Menace stars silent-era Hollywood idol Charles Farrell, Australian star Margaret Vyner and noted Austrian-German character player Fritz Kortner. Released in the US as Bombs Over London, Midnight Menace is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Following the unexplained death of a reporter, Brian Gaunt, the cartoonist on the 'Daily World', begins his own investigation. Assisted by his reporter fiancee, they find one clue leading to the operations of an international arms ring: it is the word 'Saska', which Gaunt incorporates into his next newspaper cartoon in the hope that it will bring results. It does... but not what he expects!
