G-men weed out communist spies in the Cold War classic Walk East on Beacon, starring George Murphy (Border Incident), Finlay Currie (Bunny Lake Is Missing), Karel Štěpánek (Affair in Trinidad), and Virginia Gilmore (Western Union).

When it emerges that Eastern Bloc countries have received information regarding a top secret ‘space weapons’ programme, federal agent Belden (Murphy) and his team must martial all the latest technology – including wiretaps and video recording – to prevent Professor Kafer (Currie) from being kidnapped.

Directed by Alfred L Werker (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes), inspired by the real-life case of Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and loosely based on FBI boss J Edgar Hoover’s own accounts of that case, Walk East on Beacon is a riveting account of the ‘crime of the century’.
