George Pearson nears the end of his career
9 February 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

George Pearson was one of the pioneers of the British film industry.However by the time he directed this quota quickie he was near the end of his career directing quickies for Julius hagen at Twickenham Studios.This film has all the hallmarks of quota quickies.Flat lighting ,actors grouped as if on stage with virtually no editing within scenes and actors who had probably been performing on the west end stage earlier in the day.the film is of course mainly set in a country house with the men wearing dinner jackets.There is a death early on in this case it is Felix Aylmer.there is not a great deal of tension in the film as we know how he died it is merely a case of who is blackmailing a potential MP.It does not have a great deal of merit.However watch out for a very young Geraldine Fitzgerald only a few years from her appearance in Dark Victory
