Movie Info

At a World War II emergency hospital, a postman dues under anesthetic during a relatively minor operation. One of the nurses who was present announces that the man's death was no accident, but a murder -- and then she, too, is murdered. The police are called in, led by Inspector Cockrill (Alastair Sim) of Scotland Yard, and he soon determines that any one of the five surviving members of the surgical team might have had a motive for the murders. In the course of his investigation, he also

Green for Danger is just another proof that the British, too, can make mediocre pictures.

The plot is too laboriously constructed, and the reason for the murders appears too incredible.

One of Launder and Gilliat's most likeable films.

Green For Danger will give the aisleside sleuths a better workout than they have had for months and it also will rest easily with those who are content just to sit back and let the story resolve itself.

This is the kind of brisk, bright and thoroughly engaging comedy thriller that the British film industry has, sadly, forgotten how to make.

Loved this first-rate Brit whodunit that's set in an emergency cottage hospital during WWII.

the quintessential British murder mystery of the period.

Absolutely splendid murder mystery with a great Alastair Sim performance.

A hugely likeable gem of postwar British film.

An unfairly overlooked delight in the annals of British film history.

Audience Reviews for Green for Danger (1946)

The film debut of Alastair Sim. What an actor! All the signs are here of the brilliant career ahead. Too bad he got started so late in life. Kind of like John Houseman and Richard Fansworth. Just wish they'd started sooner.This is a delightful whodunit, really, thanks to Sim's acting. Definitely a different kind of murder mystery.

Kinda felt like someone was reading a story to me in lieu of watching a movie. Found it more enjoyable for its funny moments than the whodunit part. IMO, the whodunit part was the weakest link of the movie. The actors were incredibly terrific, though, which provided quite a lot of relief.

Excellent whodunit in the English fashion. Terribly reserved and proper with tight direction, good perfomances and a wonderful one from Alastair Sim as the inspector.
