Interesting Cast in Engaging Thriller
19 September 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It has to be said that Dermot Walsh tended to play rather more red blooded characters than the meek and mild accountant who unwittingly gets involved in this spy thriller.It seems so unlikely also that he would be married to the vivacious dancer Hazel Court.The cast is full of interest.As has been mentioned Bill Travers plays an almost unrecognisable heavy.Then there are Alexander Gauge(Friar Tuck) and Archie Duncan(little John) from the Robin Hood TV series.Unfortunately for poor Gauge he couldn't get any more work after the end of the TV series and committed suicide.Here he plays the head of a spy ring determined to stop at nothing to obtain the papers which are the "macguffin" of this film.Passes the time pleasantly.
