Faded American star props up British thriller
15 October 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Like many of his contemporaries Wayne Morris found himself reduced to playing the lead in low budget British B films of the fifties.Unfortunately all that he proves is that he is better on his horse than off it.It has to be said that it does appear that he does rather have a weight problem and he rather lumbers around the screen as a mini version of Frankenstein.The plot is very familiar stuff with the villain played by that old smoothie Anton Differing.Although not dressed up in Nazi uniform one feels he is ready to say "We have ways of making you talk".There is also Bruce Seton playing a Detective.Talk about typecasting!Shown on Movies4Men it is worth a look at for the actors rather than the story.
