Mediocre British Thriller
22 November 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This bottom of the bill British thriller was recently given an airing on satellite TV.Duncan Lamont plays an electrician whose business is failing.His wife,Jane Hylton,is getting rather too close to his friend played by Donald Gray.She goes to try and persuade Gray to lend her £300 that Lamont needs for materials for a big contract.Lamont catches them together and jumps to the wrong conclusion.Eventually there is a confrontation between Lamont and Gray at Lamonts shed and a gum goes off and a fire ensues.We don't know who has been burnt to death but we have a shrewd guess.Enter the police in the guise of Meredith Edwards and Cyril Smith.It appears that most of the time they spend smoking ,pipes in particular and drinking endless cups of tea.What then follows is an investigation totally devoid of mystery ,suspense,action and thrills.It is poorly plotted and totally lacks any element of entertainment.The only bright spot is the appearance of Irene Handel.In an early scene she is shown wearing a long wig with a fringe.She is then given a perm by Jane Hylton and emerges with short hair and a perm.This is probably the most entertaining scene in the film.Also it is worth mentioning that Donald Gray lost an arm in the war.So you will see that most of his scenes are shot with his right arm facing the camera.In a couple of scenes you do see his left arm with a prosthetic left hand.It makes you feel that if this is what film makers believed cinema goers wanted little wonder that they were deserting the cinemas in droves for TV.
