Dick Barton: Special Agent is a 1948 British film about special agent Dick Barton. It was the first of three films that Hammer Film Productions made about the British agent, followed by Dick Barton at Bay and Dick Barton Strikes Back.


Dick Barton (Don Stannard) and his friends Snowey and Jack are investigating smuggling when attempts are made on his life. It turns out there is a neo-Nazi plot to contaminate Great Britain's water supply...



The film's success prompted Hammer to make a number of movies based on radio and/or TV shows. It was released in the USA as Dick Barton, Detective.[1]


Dick Barton: Special Agent currently holds an average two and a half star rating (4.8/10) on IMDb.
