Did You Know?

Goofs

(at around 1h 27 mins) At the climax of the film Philip Wraydon rubs his hands together with glee and cackles wildly at the plight of the hero. However, when the shot changes to a close-up of Philip throwing the switch to start the mechanism we can clearly see the actors mouth is closed and his lips are not moving even though he is still heard cackling away.

Even Slaughter Cannot Redeem This Film
6 May 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It would appear that the reviewer from Australia was unaware of Slaughter's reputation for performing in these overheated melodramas,and that he is generally sending up the whole genre.Unfortunately he cannot disguise the sheer awfulness of the whole procedure.The films he made for George King before the war are far superior to his later efforts for Ambassador filmed at the very small studios in Bushey.The main problem is that the film is just so boring it is impossible to hold the attention.Also it has to be said that Slaughter is well past his prime here.It was without the worst of his films and watchable only by those who are devotees of either the genre or of Slaughter himself.
