Mediocre British Crime Thriller from 1952
2 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I agree with the IMDb user rating which when I looked was 5.3.I awarded this film 5/10 as the star was Sydney Tafler (who is normally just a support character actor in 1950s dramas) and whose best role, in my book, was playing the chief orthopaedic physiotherapist in "Reach for the Sky" (1956), fitting on Douglas Bader's artificial legs!I imagine "The Floating Dutchman" was a "B" feature in the British cinemas of the 1950s.The whole production smacks of low budget and I did not recognise any other actor save for the short man running the bookshop, who briefly appeared in "Quiet Wedding (1940)" saying "Anybodys please" at the railway station magazine stall.

I agree with the other user above from France in his preferred choice of directors.My favourite on his list is Lance Comfort whose film "Bedelia" (1946) stars on of my favourites, Margaret Lockwood.
