Produced by Jerry Jackson and directed by Michael Powell for Westminster Films, the plot of "C.O.D." presents a tensely-told story of the adventures of a young gentleman down on his luck who meets adventure for the first time. He sees a maid hide the key of the area door under the mat. Peter lets himself into the house, and he finds himself confronted by a beautiful girl. The first of his surprises is the request to dispose of the dead body of a man. There are a dozen or so more of even more thrilling adventures to go through before the climax. The cast includes Arthur Stratton, Sybil Grove, Garry Marsh, Hope Davey, Bruce Belfrage, Roland Culver, Cecil Ramage, and Peter Gawthorpe.
