Storyline

Things are getting too hot in New York City for "Joker" Finnegan and his gang, so they decide to move their activities to London. There, Inspector Gray of Scotland Yard is keeping a polite eye on them as "Joker" is planning a big robbery of a large department store, known as the House of a Thousand Windows. "Joker" forces an American actor named Reilly to impersonate Mr. Sherwood, the store owner, as Reilly and Mr. Sherwood are identical in appearance. Ronald Martin, store employee and nephew of Sherwood , is fooled also, but he is much distracted by the romance he is having with another store employee, Joan.

Too Many Subplots, But Very Watchable
16 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a great, if unlikely criminal plot, fine actors and, quite clearly, a lot of film left on the cutting-room floor. Top-billed Margot Grahame, for example, has four short scenes and a lot of presence, and her motivation is pretty well unclear. Ludwig von Wohl is credited with the novel it's based on and given a screenplay credit, but somewhere along the line, someone cut out a lot to make sure this timed in at a manageable length. there are subplots that are raised, elaborated on, and then dropped in dizzying number, Despite this, or because of it, the movie moves along at a good clip. There are times when it seems as if things just don't make sense.... and then there is a revelation of what is going on and suddenly they do. Perhaps this is the purpose of the dead-end subplots. They still annoy me a bit, but the movie remains very watchable throughout.
