The Walking Stick is notable for outstanding performances by David Hemmings and Samantha Eggar, and excellent direction by Eric Till. Story concerns a physically handicapped girl who finds love, then betrayal in a jewel robbery involvement.

George Bluestone adapted the Winston Graham novel about an introverted girl who blossoms under the patient love of a vagabond artist.

Hemmings suddenly emerges as a tool of Emlyn Williams, an art dealer whose night acquisitions come via robbery. Eggar, who works in a gallery, is pressured into the heist.

Her dilemma – should she give up her happiness by reporting to the police, or keep a gnawing silence? – is resolved in a somewhat melodramatic way.
