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 who 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 »

Similar to Cage of Gold
29 June 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is very similar to Cage of Gold where a disappeared David Carter returns to blackmail his remarried wife Jean Simmons.Here we have Dennis Price a very effective and devious blackmailed come back from the dead to blackmail Renee Asherson.It is a very entertaining film notwithstanding it's very limited budget.However there is a bit of a hole in the plot.Firstly she would have received a death certificate for Price and secondly she would have been described on the marriage certificate to Barr as a widow.So Barr would have known that she had been married before.Price was on his way down when making this.So he had to make whatever was given to him.So we have a lot of performances to treasure.
