stage bound production
25 August 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This has not the slightest cinematic device in the whole film.If this were to be broadcast on radio the only thing that you would miss is the various attempts to upstage one another.In one scene early on Clive Brooks seems to be twirling his hunter watch all through the scene.The conclusion of the film is set in a courtroom where we have those wily protagonists Francis L Sullivan and Felix Aylmer trying to outdo each other.This film is more interesting as a reflection of attitudes of the time rather than as an entertainment.There is also a very young Googie withers in a small part of Ann Todds maid.if you are interested in films of this era it is worth a view.
