not one of Moreton parks finest
9 August 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was originally made by Jack Greenwood st Merton Park studios for release by Anglo Amalgamated for release on the Associated British Cinemas circuit. It is not the finest hour of any of the participants.The second half of the film being dominated by the hostage in jeopardy situation.Conrad Phillips being a fleet street reporter decides not to go to the police but to try and work out a solution for himself.This includes a ludicrous episode where he tries to skirt pepper in Hartnells face. When he finally gets to grips with Hartnell the gun is fired in the air.We then see two onlookers gasping.They don't do anything just stand and look.This sums up the silliness of this film.
