Dark Happenings In The Lighthouse
30 April 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

In the days when this was made there were no thoughts of the days when this film would be shown on TV.As a result some of the scenes ,shot in almost pitch darkness cannot be viewed.Even when i turned the room lights off i couldn't see what was happening.Lawson plays an insane lighthouse keeper!Nothing like typecasting is there.He has a hook instead of a right hand.As the film progresses as he becomes as mad as a march hare.Michael Rennie opposite him gives a good impression of an oak tree.Rennie is a British agent trying to escape from Germany.Lawson believes that Movita is the reincarnation of his late wife who is buried at the bottom of the lighthouse/The plot is silly but watching Lawson go mad is always an enjoyable experience.watch out for the lorry being driven on the left hand side of the road in wartime Germany.
