John Wilson is troubled with pain and and an inability to sleep. He tries to light the gas-fire and seeks held from another lodger, artist Nicholas, who is spending the night with his model and is reluctant to be disturbed. Another neighbor, Pollen, tries to be helpful but is hit by Wilson. Frightened and angry, Pollen calls for police help. The others in the boarding house are awaken by this time, and Mrs. Harris tries to help the mentally confused Wilson but he also refuses her help. The police clash with Dr. Sanderson, a welfare worker, who thinks he can take the gun-toting Wilson without complications, but when a police sergeant is injured, Police Inspector Thompson is determined to take Wilson by force if necessary.

This a production from ACT the film technicians union who made 23 films between 1951 and 1962.The aim being to give employment to their members.It has to be said that most of the films were unmentionable and modestly budgeted.Given that this is not one of the best remembered of Richard Attenboroughs films,the film is mainly confined to the house and there is no music it could be said that the film conforms to type.At 84 minutes it rather lustrous it's welcome and it could be said that this would probably worked better as a TV play.British Lion often had a struggle to get its films booked on the major circuits so I think that any success for this film would have been limited.
