Convoluted Thriller
27 September 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Given that this film is based on a novel by Edgar Wallace it should be no surprise that this is full of twists and turns.Alas though it seems to rely too much on plot contrivances and coincidences.The most ridiculous being that Peter Murray Hill should go to prison for two and a half years to find out about a counterfeit gang.Surely even by 1938 this device must have had whiskers on it.At times the plot of the film is rather difficult to follow,so that after about an hour you rather give up on it.I would therefore have to say that this film is only for die-hard thriller fans or those who would wish to see every film made of Edgar Wallace's output.
