Quotes

Duncan McLeod: Morning, Jane. Lovely morning.
Jane Foster: Good morning, Mr McLeod.
Duncan McLeod: Did I mention my other name was Duncan?
Jane Foster: I believe you did. I don't remember ever mentioning that mine was Jane.
Duncan McLeod: Obviously an oversight
Jane Foster: [looking at him painting] I'm glad to see that you do something else besides smuggling.
Duncan McLeod: Oh, yes.
Jane Foster: Why do you smuggle?
Duncan McLeod: Keeps me out of mischief. I'm afraid you take rather a poor view of me, don't you?
Jane Foster: Possibly. It's quite a normal view to take of people who break laws. I mean, willfully break them.

routine b thriller
8 August 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Setting the film on the coast gives this film the advantage of being different from the majority of thrillers which are set on the mean streets of London.so I suppose you could coin a new descriptive phrase,film mere,for this film. It relies far more on the acting than the story,which you could describe as a lot of old rope.Dora Bryan and Michael Balfour give excellent support to the rather leaden leads. This film rather let's itself down by some truly dreadful process photography,which rather highlights the financial constraints placed on the production.There is not a lot more to be said about this film so I will conclude the review.
