Robert Hutton accidentally gets involved in the intrigues of criminals, with Lisa Gastoni as encouragement
26 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The other reviews are all accurate. One gives the plot in detail. Another one criticizes the plot lapses. Yet another finds the film enjoyable from a nostalgic point of view.

Me? I like the film, warts and all. For those who like these 1 hour or so British crime stories, this one is par for the course. Robert Hutton is smooth as the American involved. Lisa Gastonia provides the feminine beauty and a touch of mystery. There are two sets of bad guys. Michael Balfour is around to tie the plot together. There are nice outdoor scenes with those nifty cars and low shots along the streets.

These stories are what you would call "comfortable". Predictable in their broad outlines, which is the good guy is going to win and get the girl. Unpredictable in the details and twists, which makes them fun too. A bit of action, not too much. Occasionally, these stories are really nifty. This one is not, but it suffices.

These movies are more enjoyable in clean prints. This one is out on a DVD and looks good.
