Final Appointment is a 1954 British comedy thriller film directed by Terence Fisher, and starring John Bentley, Eleanor Summerfield and Hubert Gregg.[3] It also featured Arthur Lowe, later to become famous for his portrayal of Captain Mainwaring in Dad's Army, in an early role.[4] The film was produced by Francis Searle for Act Films Ltd,[5] and was released in the U.S. as The Last Appointment.[6] A sequel, Stolen Assignment, also featuring sleuthing journalists Mike Billings and Jenny Drew, appeared the following year.[7]


A former soldier, who had been court-martialed during the Second World War, sets out to murder the officers who had passed sentence on him. A newspaper journalist and his wisecracking girlfriend try to track down the killer when solicitor Hartnell, the prosecuting officer at the court martial, receives threatening letters.


Critical reception

The Radio Times gave the film two out of five stars, calling it a "Capable thriller."[8]
