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 »

John Ireland is out to kill the man whose false testimony sent him to prison
23 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"No Time to Kill" is a Swedish film noir in English, starring John Ireland as Johnny Greco. Fresh out of 8 years in prison on a false charge, he goes to Europe to kill Nils Christians. Impersonating an insurance investigator, he insinuates himself into the cramped and drab offices of Christians. The first sequence in the film, largely without dialog, but with some narration depicts Ireland's plan to get Christians.

Along the way, the wife of Christians (Ellen Schwiers) makes a smoldering play for him, and so does Birgitta Andersson, who plays a young woman in Ireland's cheap hotel who is looking for a way out from a relationship with the proprietor. Half unclad she makes her way into the safety of Ireland's room where, mostly wordlessly, there is a man-woman communication and understanding reached that is well-staged.

Along the way, there is good noir photography, a definite noir aura and tone, and some brief jazz that features the Swedish baritone saxophonist, Lars Gullin, in a quartet. John Ireland gives a strong performance.

A nice little b-noir.

The print I viewed ran 77 minutes, significantly longer than the 61-minute version mentioned by the first reviewer. There is no DVD out on this rare item, which is of typical "trade" quality.

I am told (April 2015) that VCI is putting this out on DVD as Jerry Warren Collection, vol. 3 with another movie.
