Typical Very Average Merton Park Production, 28 June 2009
Author: JohnHowardReid

An over-talkative Edgar Wallace entry with little action (even the bank robbery occurs off-screen), but nonetheless this watered-down variation of "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" is fairly engrossing (even though it promises much more than it actually delivers) and is very capably played. Credits are slick (despite modest production values) and this also helps to keep viewers involved.

The cast includes Paul Whitsun-Jones as the chef, Jack Rodney as Knocker, Renny Lister, Geoffrey Bayldon, Michael Robbins, Victor Platt, Michael Collins, Geoffrey Mathews, and Charlie Bird. Although Michael Carr is credited for his theme music, it is not in fact used in the film. Brian Blamey was actually the sound editor. Sound recording was in the hands of Sid Rider and Red Law. Camera operator: Peter Allwork. Wardrobe: Eileen Welch. Make-up: Michael Morris. Hair styles: Connie Abel. Casting director: Ronald Curtis. Set continuity: Marjorie Owens. Production manager: Laurie Greenwood. Assistant director: Ted Lewis.
