I awarded this film 6/10 and can imagine this was a "B" film in cinemas circa 1950 when it was first released.Although reviewer "gordonl56" from Canada provides a basic plot line, it contains an error which is that Thora Hird does not play Jack Watling's mother but Pat Kirkwood's.His mother is played by Edith Sharpe.This reviewer also mentions some Sydney Tafler's oily parts he played in films.I would like to mention a sympathetic role he played namely the chief physiotherapist who helps Douglas Bader (Kenneth More)to walk again with artificial legs in "Reach for the Sky" (1956) - another Lewis Gilbert directed film.
I enjoyed seeing that big "lug" of an actor Danny Green who played Pat Kirkwood's step father Ticker James, (as I did seeing him in the Ealing comedy, "The Lady Killers".I was pleasantly amused seeing this film for the first time.Was that again Brighton used as a location in the opening shots?Jack Watling was especially notable playing 4th officer Joseph Boxall in the 1958 film "A Night to Remember".
