"One of Butcher's better efforts."
4 April 2004 | by (Poole, Dorset) – See all my reviews

Glyn Houston's Inspector Harris races against time in order to find a blood donor for a little girl (of a rare blood type) who was knocked down by a truck while attempting to run away from her rowing parents (Zena Walker & Dermot Walsh). Possible donors include a convicted criminal awaiting his execution, an athlete and a man on the run from the police. This b-pic from poverty row specialists "Butcher's" is a remake of their own "Emergency Call" (1957) and is neatly directed by Francis Searle making it one of the better efforts from this company, although things are somewhat marred by the typical cop out endings that were typical of this kind of production.
