Pale Itation Of American Films
1 December 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

In the late forties the screen was flooded with private eye films ,particularly from America,They starred the likes of Humphrey Bogart,Robert Mitchum,Robert Montgomery and Dick Powell and were written by Raymond Chandler and his contemporaries.Here we have to make do with Michael Rennie and Paul Carpenter and their mid Atlantic accents.The plot revolves around a will.The Colonel has provided that if any of his daughters marries she will forfeit her share of the estate.Of course one has and she is being blackmailed.However ,as a lawyer,i would be bound to say that such a will would be unenforceable at law so the main point of the plot collapses in an instant.We have a poor imitation of the dialogue you would expect from an American film.There is a fight toward the end which is conducted using judo and looks rather strange.Even Nigel Patrick,such a reliable villain ,is subdued here.
