Filmed in England, The Counterfeit Plan was distributed in the US by Warner Bros. Zachary Scott is right in his element as Max, a sociopathic killer who sets up a counterfeiting ring in the home of country squire Louie (Mervyn Johns). Max forces Louie to participate in his racket by threatening to expose the latter's previous life as a forger. When Louie's daughter Carol (Peggie Castle) arrives for a visit, it's the beginning of the end for the coldly conniving Max. Halfway down the cast list of Counterfeit Plan is Lee Patterson, later a regular on the TV soaper One Life to Live.
