The Police Out Of The Picture
4 April 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

As a result of the new satellite channels we are now able to view many British crime thrillers of the 40s and 50s which we all thought were consigned to the vaults for all time.So here we are afresh.The police speeding round in their Morris police cars with bells clanging:policemen disappearing into their Tardis like police box,conveniently letting the stakeout out of sight;and of course the intrepid crime reporter who is always one step ahead of the police.It is little wonder that the police ever solved any crimes unless the villain was handed to them on a plate.Incidentally as the credits are going through we see

an ABC cinema showing "Tarantula".I bet that it was a better film than this.Anyway the absurdities of the plot are entertaining enough.
