Minor British Film With Distinguished Cast
27 July 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is rather surprising to find Leslie Howard playing in this minor British film,notwithstanding the fact that it has a distinguished cast.Howard is a policeman who along with his friends has been swindled out of his savings by one of the schemes run by financier,Cedric Hardwicke.So they devise a scheme to kidnap Hardwicke's wife,Binnie Barnes and demand a ransom of 5million francs to cover the loss that they suffered.Barnes however escapes and returns home at the moment when Howard is collecting his money.However she has fallen in love with him and in the end helps to extricate the funds out of her reluctant husband.The last part of this film has some curious dialogue.It is spoken in a rather staccato manner,each sentence, each response lasting about 5 words.Given that he had previously finished Of Human Bondage and would shortly go to star on Broadway in The Petrified Forest,this is a rather strange film to have starred in.Clearly destined to support an American A feature.Not a particularly good film,the whole idea is much better done in Too Many Crooks.
