One to miss!
28 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This British quota quickie "B" movie seems to run four hours, instead of sixty-five minutes. It's all talk, talk, talk and no action. Despite location filming, production values are minimal. The story is so irretrievably juvenile that even on its own half-baked level, it comes across as stupid and illogical. The two girls – Jane Griffiths and Veronica Hurst – are reasonably talented and well worth watching, but with the exception of Bruce Seton, the other actors and the direction by Francis Searle match the screenplay – fifth rate at best! Incidentally. this was not Bruce Seton's last film, as is stated elsewhere in IMDb. That last film was actually Doctor Syn, Alias the Scarecrow (1963).
