I think "writers_reign" is being rather too hard on this short. The original story was just something to fill in a commuter journey and this is the film equivalent. Implausible? Of course. Badly acted? I thought not. I did manage to suspend disbelief for a while, and that is entirely due to the smooth professionalism of Wolfit, Medwin and Losey, and the splendid seaside photography. The film tells a story coherently, and maintains tension. We know the wicked Max must in the end be foiled but we are puzzled to know how this will be achieved, and the film's ending is more successful than the original story. Nor do I find it completely unlikely that somebody in a dim interior where the lights don't work would always realise that his host, who finds his way around confidently, is blind.
