As Timely Now as When It Was Made
4 May 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The basic story is of a man,denied access to his son,through circumstances,abducts him.I heard such a story yesterday so as they say nothing changes.The boy in question in this film is Denis Waterman making the first appearance in a career which now spans over half a century.The plot is quite neat and well told.It shows just how well the Danzigers had been able to adapt to the prevailing circumstances and turn out suspenseful films like this and turn a profit.It is a great shame that this type of film is no longer made.For railway enthusiasts there are glimpses of steam trains and also the old Euston Station before it was demolished.There are good performances all around.
