This was one of the many low budget movies made after the war. Most of them were obviously "cheapies", poor acting ,lousy dialogue and terrible plots (what else). This was a low budget film which did not fall into that category. Peter Reynolds played the role of Alec Albion a most unscrupulous arrogant bounder. He becomes the heir to a large fortune which is to be paid when his uncle (the benefactor) dies. Albion cannot wait and decides to precipitate the demise of the uncle. He hatches a foolproof plan which is guaranteed to make his future very very comfortable. So ingenious is his plan to end the uncles life it succeeds beyond his wildest dreams. Albion is the prime suspect and is brought to trial. However his alibi is so perfect and he is acquitted. Being such a braggart and knowing that once you have been acquitted you cannot be tried again, he decides to reveal the brilliant plan. He arranges a press meeting and with contemptuous glances at one and all he tells them of his perfect crime. The police arrest him immediately and charge him with the murder. He protests that they are violating the law ,informing them that you cannot be tried again for the same crime.
To continue with any further comments will spoil the end of this film. If it is ever released again do not miss it, it is a first rate "B" movie.
