Whimsical, and interesting...
2 June 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 6/4/2002 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Ernest Shoedsack): Whimsical, and interesting man being at the wrong place at the wrong time movie where an American in London becomes involved with some sort of spy thriller quite accidentally. Hard to find, forgotten film from the co-director of `King Kong.' is really played out well from beginning to end. Robert Armstrong plays the man in the wrong place with humor and bravado when needed, showing his ability to con even the cons on his own despite his anonymity. He was supposed to be taking in London for the excitement of the city but on his own he was bored, but he's dragged into an adventure that is carried on mostly in the fog-filled London streets which I'm sure helped give it the title. This is a quiet gem that should be brought out more into the open. Watch it if you can find it.
