Hurray another Ealing Film on London Live
18 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Only 5/10 this time I'm afraid but at least London Live t.v. showed today a "new" Ealing film which they haven't transmitted before.Lately they have been repeating them rather frequently in their 2-4p.m. Mon.- Fri. slot in the London area.Even for Jimmy Hanley it seemed an early film but as the other user aptly commented, he did not have the physique of a professional boxer even for a flyweight.Surely Ealing casting dept. could have cast a more suitable and believable rugged actor in the lead role.

The only other actors I recognised were Edward Chapman (a deacon in "Gone to Earth" 1949) and Norman Wisdom's Mr Grimsdale and Mary Clare (the baroness in "The Lady Vanishes 1938") and (a landlady Mrs Wallis in "A Girl Must Live" 1939).Classy Michael Wilding, 27 at the time, had difficulty acting down playing a spiv so much so that I wondered when Anna Neagle his female lead in many 1940s films was going to appear!Perhaps the miscasting by Ealing was due to contractual obligations.

The screen play was rather weak with cardboard characters
