Abstract / Summary
A scintillating Alastair Sim plays Hawkins, a timid watchmaker with a part-time job- he is also a professional assassin who bumps off all the people we love to hate. But when pompous MP Sir Gregory Upshott is the intended target, bungling vacuum cleaner salesman William Blake gets in the way.
