      ASSIGNMENT REDHEAD went out on the ABC circuit in April, 1957, as the support to THE OPPOSITE SEX. I went to see it at the time as a ten year old and, although it's now 60 years ago, I never forgot one particular scene in it. The villains murder someone in a brand new car, it may have been a Hillman Minx, and push the car over a cliff with the victim still in it. But when we see a shot from below the cliff of the car going over the edge, it isn't a Hillman Minx that goes over, but a 1930s American car. The kind we used to see in those Warner Bros gangster pictures with Humphrey Bogart. Obviously a piece of library footage. I guess the producers couldn't afford to wreck a brand new car. But it looked so obvious that it's stayed in my memory all these many decades later.

        As a ten year old? The IMDb says that they were both 'A' certificate when they were first released

          You could go in with an adult over 21.This often meant hanging around outside asking someone to take you in with them.those were the days!

            A neighbour who was 25 years older than I was took me in to see it with her son and daughter. I don't remember anything about either film, except for the scene described. I probably thought The Opposite Sex film was one big bore. In those days, I often waited outside the pictures when an A film was showing that I wanted to see and asked a man who was on his way in to take me in with him. It was considered normal in those days. These days, modern parents would be horrified at the thought of it.

              There are too many over-dramatic scare stories in the media that makes most parents terrified about "stranger danger". Never mind that many cases are actually due to relatives or friends of the family

                Here is the British quad poster for Assignment Redhead (1956) which I uploaded quite recently on a different post.

                  Great poster, Joe. Although the film itself wouldn't have won any awards.

                    No awards but it's a very rare opportunity to see Ronald Adam play a baddie. A typical 'B' movie film but entertaining enough.
