Great cinematography
31 January 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The cinematography of this film is among the best I have ever seen in a British film.Particularly the opening and closing scenes in the nightclub.Difficult to realise that the camera had only recently been released from its imprisonment in the booth.DuPont isn't quite as accomplished in his handling of dialogue.Better than in the previous years Atlantic,but still too many static dialogue scenes and interminable pauses.Donald Calthorpe has a small part unfortunately drink was contributing to his downfall.At the time this film was made DuPont was at the top of his career.He subsequently went to work in Hollywood and by 1939 he had drifted down to a Dead End Kids film.He was fired from this for hitting an actor and didn't make another film for 11 years.However he did leave a legacy of interesting films of which this is an example.
