Michael Craig infiltrates counterfeiting operation
19 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"House of Secrets" or "Triple Deception" is pretty much an undistinguished crime story, with a by the numbers infiltration of a counterfeiting gang by Michael Craig. Most memorable in it are the performances by a skilled group of actors. Eric Pohlmann sometimes overdoes his parts, but here he hits just the right notes of menace. Anton Diffring's part is rather small. Brenda de Banzie gets more air time, but her character has that stereotypical sort of smiling villainy that appears in many movies. The other two female characters are more interesting, one being a government agent and the other an entertainer whom Craig falls for. These are Barbara Bates and Julia Arnall, respectively. Ms. Arnall, a striking beauty, conveys emotions very well. There are three more bad guys, each making an impression by their character actors. Geoffrey Keen is on hand. He's always capable.

The story moves ahead swiftly enough, resorting to fights about 3 times. That gets a little old after awhile. There is more than one double cross subplot mixed in, and they add interest.

Neither a sparkling thriller not an acid crime story, this one is mild entertainment. Not bad.
