Orders to Kill is a psychological drama about a young American bomber pilot (played by Paul Massie, winner of the Most Promising Newcomer to Film Award at the 1959 BAFTA Film Awards) who is sent to Nazi-occupied France to kill a Paris lawyer believed to be betraying his colleagues in the French Resistance. Before being parachuted into France the young pilot is given a rigorous training for his assignment of murder. He finds his selected victim is a gentle henpecked husband, who dotes on his daughter, and he begins to feel that the man may not be guilty… but where will his moral dilemma lead him?
The film is based on an original story by Donald C. Downes which was adapted for the screen by George St. George.
