Oscar Homolka (Mr. Sardonicus), Derek Farr (Town on Trial), Muriel Pavlow (Doctor in the House), and Kenneth Griffith (Love on the Dole) star in the British crime classic The Shop at Sly Corner.

Descius Heiss (Homolka), a London antiques dealer, lives a comfortable life fencing smuggled diamonds in order to pay for his beloved daughter Margaret’s (Pavlow) tuition. However, when his young assistant (Griffith) learns of the arrangement, he begins to blackmail Heiss, unwittingly sparking a chain of events that leads to murder...

Also known as Code of Scotland Yard, The Shop at Sly Corner is deftly directed by George King (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), the man who helped launch Tod Slaughter’s film career, and also marked the film debut of Diana Dors.
