Timeslip (1955) Yank title The Atomic Man
Science fiction hokum that had many holes in it, and with two American actors in the lead parts that I'd never heard of - in fact the only British actor I knew was, surprisingly, Charles Hawtrey in a minor role.
Man is fished out of Thames, shot and barely alive and found to glow with radiation and yet not give off x-rays. When he comes to, he also, like the famous Two Ronnies sketch, answers the previous question - why is never explained. The two American reporters recognise him as a famous nuclear scientist, but how could that be as he is alive and working at the nearby nuclear plant. They (again) decide they can do better than the police to establish who is the real scientist.
Mixed into this is some Argentinian (too boring to go into why) plot to blow up the nuclear plant.
As I say so many plot holes, you could drive a bus through them. Load of tosh - you need some semblance of fact.

Oh come off it Sid, you're no descendent of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Dick Turpin perhaps, but no more.

Hey Tub look, it's Sid
