Noose, released in the United States as The Silk Noose, is a 1948 British crime film, directed by Edmond T. Gréville and starring Carole Landis, Joseph Calleia, and Derek Farr.[2]

It was shot at Teddington Studios with sets designed by the art director Bernard Robinson.


Set in post-Second World War Britain, Noose is the story of black market racketeers who face attempts to bring them to justice by an American fashion journalist, her ex-army fiancé and a gang of honest toughs from a local gym. The normally gentlemanly and urbane Nigel Patrick is cast as a cockney spiv.



Noose was written by Richard Llewellyn, adapted from his own stage play of the same title. The film has been included as part of the cycle of spiv films produced between 1945–50 in Britain.[2]


Trade papers called the film a "notable box office attraction" in British cinemas in 1948.[3]
