Plodding Thriller
25 April 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Two mismatched American actors are parachuted into this disappointing thriller set in Liverpool.When this was made Johnson was on the way down and aged 43.He has absolutely no chemistry with his co star,Vera Miles,about to find fame in Psycho.The plot is familiar but leaves some unresolved questions.Why was the distinguished barrister so unhelpful,and why did the police do their best to prevent Johnson uncovering the truth.They were threatening him with deportation yet since he was born in the UK,he would have had every right to remain for as long as he liked.There are some very good shots of Liverpool as it was in the fifties and in particular of the docks,now an area full of excellent museums.Bernard Lee in a small part acts everyone off the screen.The ending is predictable
