London's black market
14 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In her next to last film Carole Landis goes across the pond with Joseph Calleia to star in this British production The Silk Noose. Landis plays a Lois Lane type reporter who is doing an expose of the post war English black market. The United Kingdom may have won the war, but the country was still without a lot of basic goods and rationing was still strict by the new Labour government.

Try as I might I could not wrap myself around the concept of an Italian running London's black market, especially with regard to the recent war with Italy. Still Calleia as always is one smooth operator who unfortunately has a temper with regard to bad publicity. Which is what Landis plans to give him.

Her ally is London cop Derek Farr who was a former commando in the late war. In a rather extralegal maneuver he gets the participation of some of London's boxing clubs as his raiding party. That's something that sure wouldn't fly on this side of the pond.

Nigel Patrick is on hand as Calleia's right hand man and Stanley Holloway is a somewhat compromised police inspector. The treatment here is most uneven and what should be atmospheric is somewhat dull.
