Innocent Bystanders

Innocent Bystanders is a violence-packed, often-confusing but usually-interesting meller of secret agents on the prowl to track down and capture a Russian scientist escaped from a Siberian prison. Scene shifts from London to N.Y., thence to Turkey, where major portion of action unfolds against colorful location backgrounds.

Stanley Baker is chief protagonist, once top agent of Britain’s hush-hush spy organization but now regarded as slipped by his chief (Donald Pleasence), who in a final assignment gives him a chance to redeem himself on the scientist caper.

Never exactly explained is the reason for the desperate hunt of the scientist. Script by James Mitchell [from a novel by James Munro] is sufficiently exciting, however, and direction by Peter Collinson so realistic, that interest never lags.
