Deadly Nightshade is a 1953 British crime drama film directed by John Gilling. It stars Emrys Jones, Zena Marshall and John Horsely. A convict on the run (Emrys Jones) switches identities with a lookalike, only to find himself in even deeper trouble.
TV Guide thought the idea was "done much better in Antonioni's The Passenger (1975)," but found the film, "still occasionally entertaining"; while the Radio Times wrote, "In spite of its penury, this typical 1950s British crime quickie...is curiously engaging...Although director John Gilling throws in a few Cornish coastal views, he's mostly confined to unconvincing sets, though the cheapskate look only adds to the charm."
