Well made & suspenseful 1950's British thriller!
13 August 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is very well made & is very enjoyable it also keeps you guessing until the very end.

The Plot: A nanny takes a 18 month old boy called Simon for a walk in at the park in the city of London, she leaves him in his pram just outside the Chemist she is visiting for less than a minute & when she comes out the pram and Simon have disappeared seemingly into thin-air as none of the passers by see anything.

The Script: The movie is well written it has many red herrings and manages to keep you guessing to the very end.

The acting: The performance by the main actors is supberb especially by Julie Arnell as the Mother of the toddler and David Farrar as the policeman in charge of the investigation.

It's Full of wonderful Bit parts by well know British stars who were not so well known in the mid 1950's

You have Joan Sims who went on to make several Carry on movies who tragically died a couple of years ago.

Barbara Windsor who also became a regular on the Carry on's and is still a regular actress on British Television

Thora Hird who went on to make many more Britsh films and comedy series 'last of the summer wine' who tragically died earlier this year at the age of 92.

all in all a treat for fans of British Tv and Cinema as well as crime drama's

My vote 7/10
