poverty stricken quota quickie
1 October 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Back in the 1930s distributors would agree to purchase films at so many pence per foot.The producer would therefore make the film as cheaply as possible.His profit being the difference between the cost of producing the film and the amount received from the distributor.I think that the producer of this film must have done quite well as precious little seems to have been spent on actors sets or writers.Wally patch a popular character actor is virtually a leading player in this film.The sets are very basic.Lorries seem to be continuously driven around a studio set.|The premise upon which the climax is set seems to me to be one of the most stupid conceit ever devised.The crooked hauliers are unable and unwilling to deliver pumping equipment to a flooded mine with trapped miners.They set out though to stop the rival firm from taking the equipment and possibly getting a new contract.What is even more ridiculous is that although they are not prepared to send lorries out in the fog to deliver equipment,they are prepared to send out lorries to stop the other firms lorries.Now you try and work that out!The only consolation to the viewing public is that it is unlikely that you will ever see this on TV.The only way to see it is by buying it from a company in America.
