Weakest Link
28 October 2016 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The relatively new outfit Network is spending a lot of time (if not money, the bulk of them are out of copyright) on reissuing British 'B' movies from the forties and fifties, about half of which, had the technology and the term existed, would have 'gone straight to video'. On the plus side we do get to see several people who went on to major productions - Robert Newton, James Mason, Richard Burton - in early roles as well as excellent supporting actors - Marjorie Reynolds, Wifrid Lawson, Mary Clare and the like. A great deal of this stuff was froth like this effort in which Kenneth Griffith, riding on a bus without paying, snowballs out of control. Pleasant enough for the undemanding.
