Just rare, that's all.

I watched it just because it was a rare Roy Ward Baker's film. And not a horror flick please. So, I went to it. This director gave us good feature before his Hammer period: just remember INFERNO, MORNING DEPARTURE, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER, THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK...

So, I decided to try this one.

I got bored, I must admit. A story around a female reporter accused of a murder, she of course did not commit.

Talkative and boring for me. But I would not say it is bad and not Worth. No one has commented it yet, so I do it. But I have never liked UK stuff from the thirties and forties. This feature makes no exception.
