How much does Twist know ,Bates? How many times is this sentence repeated ? Count' em all! People who are looking for a lost gem of GB's best director ever will be disappointed;people who are looking for a "pulp fiction 1934" will be ,too,fortunately ,disappointed too.
"The fire raisers" is a so so thriller ,with some good moments of suspense ("In five minutes ,the place will be yours" as the unfortunate Twist looks at the clock :"six ,no ,four to midnight,too bad nobody can attend your final,Twist!) Francis L Sullivan is perfect as the sadistic villain,a part he would take to its absolute perfection in Dassin's "night and the city" .
A man wants to make his way of life;unlike his respectable father,he seems to be completely unscrupulous .An insurance investigator ,he gets involved in very bad things with a gang of arsonists.But as it causes death to people around,he is stricken with remorse .
They say Michael Powell praised his female star ,Carole Goodnear,who possessed American know-how.
