I'm inserting reviews for films I've see that lack one, this obscurity, it currently hasn't registered 5 votes, was shown on Talking Pictures a new free channel on Sky, review follows... Minor British crime thriller from the early days of sound, so rather static, a few chaps, and or villains having a chat! The plot involves a collection of very valuable jewels, as the criminals try to get hold of them, the structure is a bit odd, early on the scene switches from the imminent onset of WW1 to the present (1933) day, I thought something had been cut till I checked the running time. The only familiar crew or cast name, is the great George Zucco (who made about 15 films in the UK before going to Hollywood in '36) here playing to type as a gentleman, I like early British films, and G.Zucco, if you do, give this a go. Good.
