Checkpoint (1956, Stanley Baker, Anthony Steel)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

Car-racing drama starring Stanley Baker as the agent of an auto industrialist (James Robertson Justice), who is sent to Italy to lure an Italian designer away from his firm. However, the plan goes wrong and leads to theft, corruption and even murder. Also starring Anthony Steel, and directed by Ralph Thomas who was usually more at home with comedy.

A favourite with motor racing aficionados thanks to plentiful footage of the iconic Mille Miglia race.
