Middling British B Picture
19 March 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This wartime cinematic diversion is a story about gangsters trying to recover their stolen money and how this disrupts the lives of innocent parties. David Farrar, excellent as usual, plays the Detective Inspector who sets a trap to catch the thief, the gangsters, and the stolen money all at once. While doing so, he falls in love with the charming niece of the thief, played by Patricia Roc. Her uncle falls in love with her flatmate, played by the actress Anne Firth, in her first feature film role. She later died tragically young at the age of only 49. Clifford Evans plays the lead, though he is hardly a congenial leading man. But then most of those were at War at this time. The film is enjoyable enough and capably directed by Lawrence Huntington. It is for those who like to watch old British forties movies, which have their endless fascination as depicting the traditional manners, attitudes, and mores which have so utterly disappeared from Britain today. Huntington later directed NIGHT BOAT TO DUBLIN (1946, see my review).
