In 1947 the Labour Government imposed an ad valorem tax on the receipts of American film distributors to stop the flow of sterling out of the country.The Americans boycotted Britain and the government asked Rank to fill the void and he in turn Tasked Sydney Box to churn out dozens of films to show in his cinemas.unfortunately when the films were ready to show the government reached agreement with the Americans who then flooded the market with their films and British films were swamped out of the cinemas.So it is little surprise that this film was the last of the line.It seems to borrow all the best bits from its predecessors eg horse whipping,dissolute behaviour gypsy warnings and second sight.The problem is that there are too many bad bits in between.Curious that Dennis Price is top billed but blows his brains out after 20 minutes.marvellous to look at but overlong and at times dull.
