Marking the directorial debut of Guy Hamilton, later to direct a string of iconic James Bond films, The Ringer is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. The Ringer is an elusive criminal, reported dead in Australia but now thought to be alive in London. Scotland Yard, knowing the Ringer had left his sister in the care of unscrupulous lawyer Maurice Meister and that she had later been found drowned, warn Meister that the Ringer is in London. A police guard is set up around Meister's house and, surrounded by burglar alarms, he waits for further news; no intruder could possibly enter. As tension mounts, it seems increasingly clear that the Ringer is one of the people in the close circle around Meister... but which one?   Actors Herbert Lom, Mai Zetterling & Denholm Elliot Director Guy Hamilton Certificate Universal Suitable for All Year 1952 Languages English Duration 1 hour and 15 minutes (approx)

Though believed by some to have died in Australia, a series of threatening notes received in London indicate to police that the Ringer is nearby - bad news for corrupt lawyer Maurice Meister (Herbert Lom), the subject of the threats, who the Ringer holds responsible for the death of his sister. A police unit is dispatched to Meister's house to offer protection. Police psychiatrist Dr Lomond (Donald Wolfit) is part of the team in attendance and tries to help Meister stay calm in the face of the threat. However, as it becomes increasingly clear that the Ringer has infiltrated the team and is within striking distance of his target, the composure of all concerned will be firmly tested...
