Standard British B-Movie Fare
8 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Another in the long line of films distributed by Butchers Film Services, who specialised in British B-Movies. Stock Car is not without a certain period charm and, along with other similar efforts such as Wall of Death and Mystery Junction, it does pass away a pleasant enough hour or so. It features a number of stalwarts of the genre, such as Harry Fowler (mugging along quite gloriously), Paul Carpenter, Rona Anderson, Susan Shaw, Robert Rietty, and even Frank Thornton! The action scenes consist mainly of stock footage, and although stock car racing is still reasonably popular in some parts to this day, it is difficult to imagine a radio commentary of such races even in the mid-1950's. The cameo appearance of Sabrina, as Monty's girlfriend, is quite an oddity in that her speech is quite obviously dubbed! Another strange episode is the overnight admission of Monty into a children's ward in the local hospital - what the authorities would make of that these days is anyone's guess!! I suppose it is just an innocent evocation of the period, as the whole film is itself.
