Eyewitness (1971)
91 min.
Directed by John Hough.
With Susan George, Mark Lester, Lionel Jeffries, Jeremy Kemp, Peter Vaughan, Tony Bonner.
Ziggy is a boy who witnesses a political assassination. But as he's been known to have an overactive imagination, will anybody believe his story?

This tight little thriller has a lot going for it, namely very good performances by Lester and George.

Jeffries is no slouch either, in a delightful turn as Grandpa.

Brave directorial choice has a child friend of Ziggy's offed in the action.

The scenic island locale of Malta lends an air of atmosphere.

Also known as Sudden Terror.
