User Reviews

The usual scheme.

A UK thriller in the American way. A private detective investigates on the accident of a jockey just after a race where he lost. And not only him, but also a bunch of guys who bet on him. Everything is predictable here, but it's not bad after all. It looks like a US piece of work, with a score adequate to the situations; little jazzy enough to keep some interest to the atmosphere. Gals, gangsters, handsome private eye snooping around, you have already seen this a billion times before, and will be after this too.

Forgettable but a pretty time waster for lonesome Sunday evenings.

I don't know the director, but I guess he made other Edgard Wallace Mystery episodes, or films.
