Non of the gadgets of a Bond movie and with the innocence of a bygone era, this story never fails to entertain me. The acting, within the constraints of the story, was, in the opinion of this amateur, very good.
The story gives hope for the future in that, in spite of upsets and disasters that disturb the orderly life of the time, there is a right and wrong way to correct matters. Politicians have been trying to persuade us for years that they have this insight. If only they had then maybe we would be better off. But that would be Utopia where diligence would be rewarded.
J.M. Barrie certainly rewards the hero's diligence in the tale but not until the uncomfortable story line has been unfolded. Kenneth Moore's Crichton was spot on with showing competent servility and the faults that this entails. The cast made a good entertaining yarn an excellent film.
