Lucienne Templar the neglected wife of a financially embarrassed businessman is having an affair with her husband’s partner's son who works in the same company. When Francis Templar returns from a business trip to America, the affair is admitted, but Templar refuses to give a divorce. Believing that his wife is about to leave, Templar attempts suicide, but survives a fall although he loses his memory. Blackmail ensues but it is all resolved in four days!
A few frames after Francis Templar is seen boarding a plane, an Avro Lancastrian Reg. G-AGMM with BOAC livery is seen taking off. Stock footage, as this plane crashed in 1949 and was withdrawn from service! Francis is later seen returning from America, once again, on an Avro Lancastrian with BOAC livery but this time G-AGMA. This is also likely to be stock footage as it was withdrawn from service in January 1951. "A30yoyo" of pprune.org Forum believes that G-AGMA is landing on 28R London Airport (i.e. Heathrow)….the chimney visible on the left at that time being Technicolor’s plant. "WHBM" of pprune.org Forum advises that BOAC did not fly Lancastrians to America.
