Sub-Ealing caper from the regular team of Crichton and writer TEB Clarke (with help from Patrick Campbell): clergyman Redgrave is actually a crook who passes off his frequent spells inside as missionary trips to Africa, but when his innocent son gets a job assisting judge Morley, the swindler's underworld cronies snap into action to prevent the truth being revealed. Mild fun sustained by the usual slew of British character types. Based on the novel Smugglers' Circuit by Denys Roberts.
