Mind the trapdoor!
25 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sebastian Shaw (Inspector Bradley) wears too much make-up. He is also on the trail of some face powder smugglers. These face powders, while being illegally smuggled, are actually also a front for some type of drug smuggling. Anyway, Shaw suspects society bigwig Jack Hawkins (Mark McGill) is behind it all. He is, but how will Shaw get his man?

The film moves along at a good pace. There is a sinister violin player Ludwig Stossel (Li Yoseph) who plays an important part in the story, but his violin playing is atrocious. Basil Radford also turns up as an eccentric actor. The cast are OK but the fist fights are very poorly executed.

We know what the outcome will be but this whole face powder smuggling racket does make you think that they never really got to the top man in the organization. Just look at Inspector Shaw's face – definitely some police involvement with the powder! The film is OK, but that's all. Funny last line.
