Promising Start But Dull Execution
14 September 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Made by the Danzigers for the bottom half of a United Artists double bill.This film starts with a promising premise but falls away to become rather routine and by the end rather boring.Dermot Walsh is acceptable as the lead.It makes a change from the American fading stars that were usually parachuted in for the American box office.Clearly this indicates that this was not a consideration.The film is told in flashback which I always consider an unsatisfactory device.Difficult though to understand why the periodical would take such an interest in the death of a suicide nor how it would be that the coroner would miss such an important issue as a bruise on the corpse.
