mismatched leads
2 August 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Tom Drake and Shirley Eaton must be the most mismatched leads to be seen in any British B film.Drake is third billed in this film having been parachuted in as the mandatory American actor to help get an American release.Shirley Eaton gives probably the worst performance of her whole career.She just cannot find it within herself to register any sort of emotion.This means that the acting honours go William Hartnell without breaking sweat.The story is a routine crime film where the crops fall out after the robbery.However the last few minutes are so badly staged and acted that any tension that may have been worked up is totally lost.
