This film has the feeling of having been extensively edited.There seems to be the first reel missing.Bogarde and the boy are on the bomb site without any explanation,this now has to come late in explanatory dialogue.After starting out to be a standard fugitive film it develops into a sort of reverse 39 Steps.The problem is that with each step taken by Bogarde his reason for keeping the boy seems even more implausible..After all since he will be having a date with Albert Pierrepoint you would think that the last thing he would want to be lumbered with is a child.I am no fan of films featuring young children,of which there were many in the 1859s.So I am afraid that I found this film to be a bit of a pain.
