Trivia

Based on a very popular BBC radio programme of the 1940s called 'Meet the Rev'. in which a Father Brown-style clergyman solves crimes when he isn't saving souls. The film wasn't so successful so a series didn't follow (although the the character did appear briefly on television). Gale Pedrick, creator of the radio series, co-scripted the film with director Godfrey Grayson. See more »

Watchable early Hammer thriller.
14 July 2016 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I'm inserting reviews of all films I've seen that so far are lacking one, this is a rare occasion where I can recommend one of these obscurities, review follows.... Hammer thriller, based on a BBC radio serial, the Rev S.Cherry is on his way to the west country, his car breaks down & he has to stay the night at a country house, just as a suspicious death occurs! I got a copy from a collector in the USA, it had been sourced from a screening on C4 in the UK, unfortunately it was in poor condition, and the end was missing; if you get a chance, give it a look and post a more informative review, it's worth a look. Need 10 lines re odd IMDb rules, so will simply comment that the director Godfrey Grayson directed a few films for Hammer in a short 3 year period from 1949 to 1951.
