D'arcy Conyers both wrote and directed the lightweight comedy/drama The Devil's Pass. Veteran British character actor John Slater, best known for his role as Sgt. Stone on TV's Z Cars, enjoys one of his few leading film roles as the captain of a rundown fishing boat. A young stowaway (Christopher Warbey) befriends the gruff old salt. When the captain is threatened by villainous wreckers, the young man comes to the rescue. Devil's Pass was designed for double bills, though it was substantial enough to stand on its own in smaller theatrical engagements.
