British anti-semitism rears its ugly head again
15 June 2008 | by (Brooklyn, N.Y.) – See all my reviews

I would've shrugged off this typical Tod Slaughter exercise in over-the-top Victorian-era villainy, but there was a character in the film which I couldn't ignore. It seems that Slaughter's usual crook/murderer/lecher is this time helped by another crook named Melter Moss. This man is one of the most vicious anti-semitic caricatures anyone would want to see. Made up to look ugly, and with a high, nasal, whiny voice, Melter joins with Slaughter's villain, the Tiger, to steal as much as they can from Britain's supposedly noble aristocracy. Of course, the Jewish character is shown to be cheap, worships money, and doesn't care about the Tiger's stranglings "as long as they don't interfere with (his) business." At the time, Britain restricted Jewish immigration to pre-independence Israel and put the Jews of Europe within the grasp of Nazi Germany's Final Solution; therefore England freely promoted anti-semitic stereotypes in its films, including, unfortunately, a poor excuse for a B grade melodrama like this.
