Downbeat
25 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First viewing: November 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

And so it comes to a close. The final `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' has just been viewed after a nineteen year gap. `The Corvini Inheritance' is a downbeat tale of loneliness - not unlike Francis Ford Coppola's `The Conversation'. David `Invisible Man' McCallum plays the part of a troubled auction house head of security whose sanity suffers when a collection of valuable Italian jewellery is delivered to his premises. The camerawork is fantastic but the ending is sadly inevitable and almost an anti-climax. Notwithstanding this - the series has been something to cherish and we will never see its like again. 6/10
