(US title). Discovered empty page had been posted for this B-film I saw when I was knee-high to a dwarf. Children's thriller set in Malta. Trying to find a decent copy/source - apparently only on VHS and then a Region 1 US-only DVD as alternative title Sudden Terror - but found youtube trailer to be going on with. If/when I get a full copy, I'll upgrade.

Everything now updated/upgraded from full film. The final cliff road sequence as the Land Rover destroys the Herald is one of the most spectacular chases I can remember for good old-fashioned skill, direction, use of location, tension etc and well worth finding a copy - deserves to be much more widely known. Apart from a simple plot aimed more at children, the only real flaw with the film is a total lack of locally-assembled Rootes-crap - it could have done with a few Imps, Minxes, Hunters, Vogues etc. And for cl82's info, Van Der Graaf Generator provided a lot of the incidental music, but this was not one of their notable moments.

Background cars - these are the only views before anyone asks:
1] 1959+ Consul Mk2 saloon with headlight chrome at 11-40:

2] local body bus at 19-42; the Escort Mk1 on right was probably local assembly, there's a Victor FB on left, and various other stuff to play with:

3] Fiat 600 at 22-18:

4] a Merc Benz Binz ambulance at 30-41:

(absolutely no relevance for the film, but probably a casual reference to Malta's WW2 experience)
