The Diamond (released in the US as The Diamond Wizard) is a 1954 British film noir crime film starring Dennis O'Keefe, Margaret Sheridan and Philip Friend. It has the distinction of being Britain's first 3D film, though according to the British Film Institute (BFI), it was shown in 3D only once, on 13 September 2006 in Hollywood.[1] Despite the 2006 showing the film was listed on the BFI 75 Most Wanted list of lost films.[1] The film, however, is not lost and can be viewed on Amazon Prime.


It was shot at Walton Studios with location filming taking place around London. The film's sets were designed by the art director Denis Wreford. It was produced by the independent British company Gibraltar Films for release by United Artists. It was O'Keefe's second role in a British film having starred in another crime-thriller The Fake the previous year.

It seems unclear who directed The Diamond. According to the British Film Institute website the British release credited British B-picture veteran Montgomery Tully as director, while the US release credited the film's American star, Dennis O'Keefe.[1] However, the US print viewed by the reviewer of the American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures credits Tully[2] while a YouTube video with the opening credits of a print bearing the British release title credits O'Keefe.[3]


After a gang pulls off a heist to acquire freshly minted dollars, American Treasury Agent Joe Dennison pursues their trail to London. With the assistance of a Scotland Yard detective, he attempts to break a racket involving the production of synthetic diamonds.
