Storyline

Based on how far out of the socket the long arm of coincidence is stretched in this film, it is a lot closer to a Tex Avery cartoon then it is any kind of film noir genre. American Richard Arlen, long past his prime and cast in order to have an American actor heading the cast so the film might actually induce an American booking (an observation based on the reality of selling tickets and with no intentions of knocking the other-wise good all British cast), gets innocently involved with a drug ring when he is left a package containing their stolen goods. Some stuff happens but he and a detective meet and eventually round up the crooks. The other primary reason for an independent B-film of this quality ending up with 20th Century-Fox as the distributor is that TC-F was up to their ears in slow-in-production CinemaScope films and couldn't make enough films fast enough to meet the demands of their exchanges and exhibitors and had to turn to the indies to provide more product.

Finders Keepers

The usual UK programmer starring an US star - Richard Arlen. The tale of an American sailor who finds a package near his boat, on a harbor, and who decides to keep it for him. But, of course, he doesn't know what's inside...

That's when his problems begin. He is confronted with a bunch of hoodlums who want to recover what seem to belong to them. No one knows what's inside the package. But every one in the audience has guessed that is not powder milk...It's a well paced and not boring little UK thriller. Action sequences are worth those in US films of this time. The car chase at the end, in the pool of London, in the middle of warehouses, is pretty good too.

In short, an acceptable Monty Tully movie. He, perhaps, has done better, but he has also done worse.
