a desperate Cesar is carrying around the body of Ms Kendall
Pretty obscure British noir starring Cesar Romero and Kay Kendall. Both actors perform well enough but it is the exotic Simone Silva who is a little more eye catching and the ever limping 'Limpy' who sees a little more of the action. What action there is, that is, for this is fairly lame stuff with the various fairground staples like the laughing policeman and a fortune telling clown being relied upon to 'spice things up'. True we do have the attempted seduction of the aforementioned Simone and the protracted and effective sequence where a desperate Cesar is carrying around the body of Ms Kendall. She seems more fetching dead but that's probably just me! The London street scenes have a certain charm and there are little touches like the 'rag and bone man' and the real life fortune teller, who looks like she stepped out of the music hall. Bit of a novelty and it doesn't outstay its welcome. It is suggested that 7 minutes were taken out for US release and I can't possibly imagine what that was for.
