Pretty Good
4 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recorded this film when it was on TV a few nights ago and rather enjoyed it. It was a movie that I had not known about, but it is the sort of film I would have gone to see at the pictures in the 60's, if I had known of it. Patrick O'Neal is a private eye who has been employed by an Insurance Company to investigate the suspicious sinking of some ships. There is some lively banter between O'Neal and Herbert Lom which I liked, and scenes with O'Neal and Joan Hackett have quite a bit of sparkle about them. The only thing I didn't like was the whistling of the same irritating tune by Lom's henchman. Happily this only happened in the first quarter of the film. All in all, I thought that this was an entertaining film with a good cast and with a neat twist thrown in. A decent little movie.
