This crime thriller for Anglo-Amalgamated was Gerry Anderson's directorial film debut, and the only feature-length production to be made by AP Films, co-founded by the legendary puppet pioneer in 1957.
Released in 1960 between the making of Four Feather Falls and Supercar, Crossroads to Crime features the talents of several of Anderson's later Supermarionation collaborators, including George Murcell, David Graham, Anderson's future wife Sylvia and Barry Gray, whose iconic themes famously complemented the Supermarionation series of the 1960s.

The original titles are included as a separate special feature.
