Although Madeleine Robinson plays the female lead ,her appearances do not exceed 15 minutes and it's rather a "special guest star " performance. Another mystery is why the headmaster of a posh school should let one of his pupils go with the first to come (a heavily made-up Robinson)under the pretext that his mother has had an accident!
The abducted child is a subject as old as the hills,and this one does not really renew it.The only original thing is that the distraught father , who fears that if the police had to be brought in,it could endanger his son's life ,asks some help from the underworld ;once he saved a gangster who could not have an operation in a hospital;and the gangster's moll -a former nurse!-abets dad.
