Interesting made for TV movie, better than anticipated!
26 July 2004 | by (Nantwich, England) – See all my reviews

Copyright date on film shows 1967. Alternative title "Except People get Killed". UK certificate 'A'. I was lucky enough to see an original Dye Technicolor print of this picture, projected theatrically, so I saw it in it's optimum viewing condition, which certainly adds that extra something. Even viewing through rose tinted spectacles however, it's not a great movie, but there's plenty of action to keep you occupied throughout. A proper boys own adventure in fact.

Dennis Weaver is inevitably somewhat limited as an actor, but never the less I still got a lump in my throat when this interesting minor film ends somewhat tragically, helping to leave an indelible impression on the memory.

A 'B' movie in all respects but certainly worth a look at.

Clearly originally shot in Academy ratio and photographically composed very nicely in that format, only the main and end titles have been re-shot to conform with wide screen cinema projection. I was lucky to see it projected in Academy format by an intuitive and intelligent projectionist. The composition would certainly be an uncomfortable fit if shown in 1.85:1 with all the cropping that this would entail. All told, I had a pleasant evening with this film. Not every film can be an academy award winning block buster. The lesser, smaller films have their place too. It's all part of the rich tapestry of film appreciation, and good to have a balanced diet.
