quota quickie on a cruise
31 July 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This quota quickie was made at shepperton studios,then called Sound City.it was made by Fitzpatrick Pictures for distribution by MGM.I wonder if this company was connected James Fitzpatrick who made all those Technicolour travelogues for MGM in the 1930s.This film is a fairly epitomized mystery only with the unusual twist of being on a cruise liner.The production values are quite above the usual quota quickie.It stars and is directed by Percy Marmont who had a very long career.There are the usual numbers of murders and clichés that you expect from this type of film.Whilst not outstanding certainly worth a viewing.
