This is a quota quickie from the 1930s.Now this can lead to poverty of ideas as well as production standards,but not in this case.The main reason is a standout performance by Gordon Harker.More often on the right side of the law,as in The Frog or Inspector Hornleigh this time he is a former criminal trying to go straight and being mistaken for someone else when he arrives at a country estate ,There are many of the usual components of this type of film.It has to be said that without the efforts of Harker this would be a fairly mundane effort.For those who do not know of him he played mainly character roles between 20's and 50's,mainly with a cockney background.His well known catchphrase was "Well now me old cocksparra".Anyway if it comes your way it is worth a viewing.
