The Name Of The Frog is .......
26 March 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

For some strange reason this film has not been broadcast for over 50years.Nor unlike its sequel Return of The Frog is it available on video.In the 30s these secret masterminds seemed to be the rage in every country.Edgar Wallace obviously knew that he was on to a good thing when he wrote the original.D.S. Elk played by the rather bumbling Gordon Harker is aided by a moustachioed and rather young Jack Hawkins.There are lots of familiar names in the cast ,including Esme Percey,Felix Aylmer,who is loathe to reveal his calling as the public hangman and Ctril Smith as a hapless policeman ,or so we are lead to believe.Also on view is Noah Beerey brother of Wallace who plays a character who is rather a red herring.The whole film moves along with pace and a lot of humour.It is not difficult to guess who is The Frog.he actually goes by the name of Harry Lime.So i wonder if the writers of "the Third Man" saw this film and decided to name Orson Welles character after The Frog.Just a great shame that this film is not available on video.
