The ill-fated Janet Munro is quite charming as the female bait used to trap Ian Carmichael's scientist. The police officer seems to imply that they could just avoid reporting all this to avoid the effort, but Garrett wants to follow all official steps. The Radio Times Guide to Films gave the film 2/5 stars, writing: "After a decade top-lining some of the wittiest social satires ever made in the UK, lan Carmichael's fortunes were on the wane by the time he starred in this leaden comedy thriller.

In the woods, Garrett gets caught in an animal snare, and Maggie goes to find a stick to help pry it open. Looking along Blechynden Street W10 with Mersey Street to the right, Oldham Road to the left and the junction with East Mews Road in the distance. This shot also features in the following productions; Cage of Gold (1950), Escapade (1955), Left, Right and Centre (1959), and Beat Girl (1960) (all qv).

Garrett is starting to doubt he is in the correct place, when he sees Maggie talking to Richter and finds a room upstairs with a chessboard that is missing the knight piece he has. We are aware that there are films on the site that were added when the criteria for the inclusion of locations was very different from today and, as a result, there may be scenes missing from some productions. The random occurrences circumvent this intention and before we know it he has met Janet Munro and is in Yorkshire. He meets up with an old mentor and friend, Frank Melnicker, who is playing multiple games of chess at a display of simultaneous play at a temperance hall.

Ian Carmichael, overdoing both comic and dramatic effects, makes an unprepossessing hero; most of the minor roles are dully overacted; and even Hugh Griffith, gleefully hamming it up as a modern Noah fleeing the nuclear deluge, fails to make his scenes seem anything other than tiresome irrelevancies designed to bolster a faltering plot. Ian Carmichael made a wonderful career from playing well-meaning, naive and gullible young gentlemen, so my interest was piqued when I saw that Hide and Seek was billed as a 'thriller'. At least the denouement explains everything even if i wasn't exactly sure what was going on beforehand. Garrett starts to walk down the road and comes across a policeman on a bicycle who goes back to the cliff with him. Having jumped from the train when the two agents were encountered, David and Maggie say goodbye to Wilkins (Hugh Griffith) after spending the night on his narrow-boat.

Directed by the BAFTA-nominated Cy Endfield, whose credits include Zulu and Hell Drivers, Hide And Seek also stars Oscar winner Hugh Griffith, Bond villain Curt Jurgens and Golden Globe-winning British actress Janet Munro; the film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Not exactly the Ministry of Defence, this is the entrance to the Anatomy Building of University College London on Gower Street. The Monthly Film Bulletin wrote: "A sort of poor man's James Bond exercise, feebly directed in sub- Hitchcock manner. Kieron Moore, who had a real talent for darkly smooth and menacing characters, appears but is underused.
