John Cummings (Richard Todd) is one of life's near failures. A toiletry salesman, he buys a flash car he cannot afford to insure. When it is stolen by a gang running a car theft racket, he vows to retrieve it whatever the cost - his job, his family and his dignity. He begins to delve into a sinister criminal underworld with potentially lethal consequences. This stark British thriller features Sellers in his first dramatic role as Cummings' nemesis, a gangland villain. Directed by John Guillermin, Never Let Go also stars Elizabeth Sellars, Adam Faith, Carol White, Nigel Stock, and John Le Mesurier

It's fascinating to watch Peter Sellers as a bad guy in a non-comedy. Have a look at him in Hoffman as well.
