An acceptable time waster

A routine show for me. A Val Guest film starring two American actors, such were so many British movies from this time - see Terence Fisher's ones. But no real surprises. The flat yarn about a young boy who finds a weapon among the ruins of a building in London and who runs away with it. It appears that this gun was used ten years ago for a murder.

You stay awake all along this little story, but I am sure that you'll have forgotten all this two years later. Nothing exceptional. The ending is easily foreseeable.

But it's always a pleasure to watch Lizabeth - the Throat - Scott and the likes of Steve Cochran and Herbert Marshall. Even in a British film. And val Guest is a pretty good artisan.
