Never Let Go is a 1960 British thriller film directed by John Guillermin and starring Richard Todd, Peter Sellers, and Elizabeth Sellars. The film tells the story of John Cummings (Todd), a young car salesman who, after mistakenly selling a car that was used in a robbery, sets out to find the thieves and retrieve his car. The film opens with Cummings at work, trying to sell a car to a difficult customer. When the customer finally agrees to buy the car, Cummings happily hands over the keys and walks away, thinking that he has made a successful sale.

However, he soon realizes that the car he sold was used in a robbery and that the police are now looking for it. Cummings is devastated when he learns that his mistake has caused a young boy to be killed during the robbery. He decides to take matters into his own hands and sets out to find the thieves and retrieve his car.

Cummings' search leads him to a seedy world of criminals and he soon finds himself in danger. Along the way, he meets a petty criminal named Lionel Meadows (Sellers), who agrees to help him find the thieves for a fee.

Meadows proves to be an erratic and unreliable partner, leading Cummings into all manner of trouble. However, he also proves to be surprisingly useful at times, and the two men develop an unlikely friendship as they navigate the dangerous criminal underworld.

The film is a tense and gripping thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The plot is well-crafted and the characters are complex and interesting, with Todd delivering a strong performance as the desperate and determined Cummings and Sellers providing comic relief as the flamboyant and unpredictable Meadows.

The film also features strong supporting performances from Sellars as Cummings' loyal wife and Adam Faith as a young criminal who becomes caught up in the search for the stolen car.

Never Let Go is a highly entertaining and well-made thriller that stands the test of time. It is a testament to the talents of its cast and crew and remains a must-see for fans of British cinema.
