Lyndon Brook puts his violent moment behind him, but not the loss of his son
19 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Violent Moment" (1959) isn't part of the Edgar Wallace mystery theatre series, but it has a stationary bust of Wallace in the credits. There are a few other films in this pre-series category as well. This one runs 61 minutes and fits the bill. The subsequent Alfred Hitchcock Hour would have a similar kind of ironic feel to it, often with twist endings.

Lyndon Brook, an army deserter, has a two-year old boy by a whorish woman and lives with her. He hasn't found a good job or opportunity. He buys a toy for the boy but arrives home only to find that his woman has given the boy up for adoption for 20 quid. When she refuses to tell him the names of his new parents, Brook accidentally strangles her in his fury. This violent moment he puts behind him, as do the police, who cannot track him down. Five years later, he's settled in to a solid business, a respectable life and has a fiancée. He cannot forget his lost son, his only tangible link being the toy that he has kept. What can go wrong? This is a solid little Brit noir.
