Compact, competent, whodunit
9 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the vogue for ever more epic and spectacular productions in the Fifties, in the struggle to draw the audience away from the goggle-box, less time was available for the humbler supporting feature, with many, like this, now lasting barely an hour. It is the work of Independent Artists, whose founder, Julian Wintle, and some of its personnel, notably the director Sydney Hayers, were to later make some of the best episodes of The Avengers; their 'B' pictures were some of the classier of the period, employing first class casts.

Canadian, Lee Patterson, who starred in at least a dozen British 'B's between 1957 and 1960, gives one of his stronger performances as an airline pilot, with a marriage on the rocks, who becomes chief suspect in his wife's murder. The police in the person of Geoffrey Keen, as authoritative as ever, are pretty sure of his guilt, so it's a race against time to find the real killer. Among the associates of his former wife are a theatrical impresario, played by John Paul, famous around the time for his role in the popular soap 'Emergency Ward Ten' Ferdy Mayne as a professional stage dancer, and her lover, a doctor, Peter Dyneley, whose real-life wife Jane Hylton also appears as his receptionist. She would go on to co-star in CIRCUS OF HORRORS for the same company, straight after this. Barbara Shelley is sympathetic as the mutual friend of Patterson and his late wife, who offers him her support. All are capably directed by the veteran Lawrence Huntingdon, who ensures the hardly original plot runs swiftly and smoothly. Nothing out of the ordinary, but worth watching.
