I rated this film 5/10 being an average "B" film often shown in British cinemas in the 1950s before the big feature.I have a specialist DVD dealer in north London who specialises in these vintage films from the 1930s/40s/50s etc. with whom I trade occasionally.I was saddened years ago to read that the late June Thorburn died prematurely in a flying accident and was anxious to see her.Additionally I was intrigued to see this DVD had a performance by Robert Ayers who amongst other roles played Arthur Peuchen (commodore of the Royal Yacht club in Canada) who appeared in "A Night to Remember" (1958) and who was on board the "Titanic".As they were short of seamen to man one of the lifeboats, an officer asked if there was anyone with boat experience.Peuchen said "I am a yachtsman, I will go if you like" and Peuchen saved himself by shinning down the falls to the lifeboat waiting below.
Of course Alan Wheatley plays his usual suave villainous character.Who can forget his performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 1950s children's TV series, "The Adventures of Robin Hood" with Richard Greene. This film ends prematurely and the plot is confusing and not properly explained to the viewer.Maybe the running time had to be edited, hence my average rating.
