Suspect is a 1960 British thriller film directed by Roy Boulting and John Boulting and starring Tony Britton, Virginia Maskell, Ian Bannen, Peter Cushing and Donald Pleasence. Based on the 1949 novel A Sort of Traitors by Nigel Balchin, it was filmed on a limited budget at Shepperton in seventeen days. The film was released in the United States as The Risk.
It was shot at Shepperton Studios with sets designed by the art director Albert Witherick.
A young scientist's pioneering work and his acquaintance with subversive anti-government groups attract the attention of the authorities.
The Times wrote, "the film is produced and directed by Mr. Roy and Mr. John Boulting; they have made a workmanlike job of what was a workmanlike book". TV Guide later wrote, "at times it is highly crafted, and the careful planning behind the production comes through well. However, the rapid shoot and low budget occasionally give this the look of a made-for-television film, and despite the tautness of the direction, the story is merely a routine thriller."
