Unknown BIP thriller is worth a view
13 July 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is a sad fact that whilst a fair number of Hollywood films of the early talking films still remain in public view the same can not be said of British films of this era.For example,All Quiet On The Western Front,Applause,Public Enemy,42nd Street.Apart from a few films directed by Hitch this period is almost unknown.This film is a case in point.It is a thriller set in a nightclub.However the period and the settings add to the charm.It is all very light and engaging and still engages one.It is helped by some of the performances.There is a brilliantine's Hay Petrie playing a convincing villain with a nifty hand with the dagger.There is Jameson Thomas who went to Hollywood and played character parts.One of the leading ladies is Muriel Angelus.She happened to go to the States where she was in a lot of Broadway shows and Hollywood films.In fact believe it or not her last film credit is as The Great Mcgintys wife.A really touching performance in that great film.There is also a very young Garry Marsh.So there is a lot to commend this unknown film.Not a classic but still worth a view.
