Trivia

Released in America by the notorious Jerry Warren, who removed around 30 minutes of footage or one third of the movie. He later incorporated several scenes from the movie into The Wild World of Batwoman (1966). This is the only (known) movie Mr. Warren released without adding footage of his own to it. See more »

English-language Swedish crime drama with John Ireland
9 September 2003 | by (south Texas USA) – See all my reviews

Known as NO TIME TO KILL in its US form, this film is a footnote among cult-film fans because it was distributed in the USA by Jerry Warren's ADP films. In fact, a brief clip (about 30 seconds or so) of a robbery in an alley that comes about halfway through NO TIME TO KILL is used at the beginning of Warren's WILD WORLD OF BATWOMAN. However, for the film itself, it is shot in English (like Terror in the Midnight Sun), and somewhat minimalist in style. It almost plays like a longer, Swedish version of an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode, but with sex-starved female characters. Ireland plays a man who was jailed for a crime he didn't commit and who goes to Sweden to find the man actually reponsible. I won't give away the plot, but the title NO TIME TO KILL works on a number of levels. This plays very much UNLIKE an American crime film and is quite unlike French or German crime films. The Swedes clearly have their own take on the genre. My print of this runs 61 minutes--I'd be interested to know if longer versions are available. An interesting curio...as always, Ireland is impressive.
