Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Like many of the Robert S. Baker-Monty Berman productions of the 1950s, the British White Fire was released stateside by Lippert Films. Hollywood's Scott Brady heads the cast as US merchant marine officer Gregor Stevens. Arriving in London to pay his brother a visit, Stevens discovers that his sibling is to be hanged for murder within three days. After digesting this unpleasant news morsel, Stevens sets about to prove his brother's innocence. Before the 72 hours has transpired, our hero has become involved with a gang of diamond smugglers--not to mention gorgeous nightclub chanteuse Yvonne Durante (Mary Castle). Director John Gilling cowrote the screenplay with Paul Erickson, who also appears in a minor role.
