Wanted by Scotland Yard is a 1937[1] or 1938[2] British crime film directed by Norman Lee and starring James Stephenson, Betty Lynne and Leslie Perrins.[3] It was made at Welwyn Studios, and is sometimes known by the alternative title of Dangerous Fingers. Its year of release is often described as 1939, the year of its American distribution, but it had premiered in Britain earlier. When jewel thief Fingers (James Stephenson) recognises intended victim Standish (Leslie Perrins) as the man who caused the death of his girlfriend, his motivations switch from robbery to revenge.[4]
