Monday for 3 days - Eddie Drake at the Essoldo
13 January 2011 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

Eight Eddie Drake mysteries were edited into four second feature films released theatrically by Butchers Film Service Ltd. and Jack Phillips Distributors to minor UK cinemas between February 1954 and February 1956. Titles in order of release were The Brass Key, Eddie Drake Investigates, Pattern for Murder, and Murder Ad Lib. All given A certificates by the British Board of Film Censors. Children under 16 could not be admitted unless accompanied by an adult. Mediocre TV show enlivened by the versatile talents of both the accomplished Haggerty, and the beautiful Patricia Morison. So often was Haggerty wasted in minor uncredited parts. Whenever his familiar face filled the screen some may not have known the name, but we recognised the man, and knew that however small the role, he would steal that particular scene.
