This is a fairly routine British thriller from the 50s starring yet another has been American actor in the hope that the producers can find an American distributor.Many of the elements of this film are well worn not to say hackneyed.However my unhappiness with the film is due to the fact that it doesn't play fair.The audience should always have a clue as to whom the actual killer is.However in this film i had no idea who the killer was because he confessed to motives that were never revealed to us.There is nothing remarkable at all about this film and i guess that this would have ended up as the bottom half of a double bill which is where it belonged.
