Trivia

Martin Radley makes a comment about the false name he used when he rang Barbara Everton and links it to the poem "Enoch Arden". This is a poem published in 1864 by Alfred Lord Tennyson, the Poet Laureate at the time. The poem is about a man goes to sea to earn money to support his wife and family and returns after ten years to find his wife is remarried with a new child. See more »

Minor British crime programmer with some nice directorial flourishes, some dreadful sets and a sadly under par, but nevertheless highly watchable Dennis Price
1 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

A cheaply made thriller with a convoluted plot, and some clunky dialogue sequences (writing and directing), but enough of interest to keep you going - especially if you like British character actors, like Dandy Nichols, Alfie Bass, William Franklyn and Duncan Lamont. And, for me, a performance by Dennis Price is always worth watching. Although he's rather lacklustre in this supporting feature, he has some nice, sinister moments as an oily villain. His posture is assured and confident, his suits are well cut, he commands attention, and stands head and shoulders above the rest of the cast, which also boasts a nice performance from Susan Shaw (who was also, at that time, somewhat down on her luck, after a very promising start.) Director Don Chaffey clearly struggles with budget and time constraints and some dodgy sets, but there is a pivotal action sequence (I wont give it away) which is chillingly good - a sudden break from the style of the rest of the film, beautifully directed and edited. It's also interesting to see so much of London, 9 years after the end of WW2, still showing the ravages of the blitz. Nice print running on ABCTV in Australia.
