This movie is based on a true story as written in A.P. Scotland's autobiography "The London Cage". The plot has greatly exaggerated the actual events of A.P. Scotland's experiences, including the addition of a fictional love interest.
BLIND SPOT is another low budget B-movie thriller from Butcher's Films, a company known for producing films that were always cheap and sometimes gems. This isn't a gem, but it is worth a look for the presence of many future famous actors, alongside a not-bad storyline if you can overlook the contrivances.
The storyline involves an American soldier who's been left temporarily blind by an injury. Thanks to his blindness he accidentally ends up at the wrong address, where he stumbles upon a murder in progress. The murderers let him go after throwing him down some steps. Later, the soldier recovers his sight, but there appears to be no trace of the crime so he attempts to solve it for himself. The story is reminiscent of a Hitchcock one but the paucity of the budget makes it a little dull.
It's all very slight, of course, with the usual storyline involving the gang of villains who must be outwitted at all costs. There are minor twists here, betrayals and the like, alongside a couple of middling fist fights to keep things moving along. The supporting cast is where the interest lies, although Robert Mackenzie (FIEND WITHOUT A FACE) is a wooden hero whose Scottish accent keeps appearing through his American one. A youthful Gordon Jackson pops up as an ally, while Michael Caine has an early cameo. John Le Mesurier has a slightly bigger supporting role, while George Pastell (IMPACT) is once again typecast as the villain.
