Good-looking filming of a complex Wallace story
18 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Locker 69" (1962) crams into less than one hour an Edgar Wallace story with many characters and places, but it all hangs together. The screenplay takes pains to be logical in treating relationships. This slows it down a bit, but nothing serious. The film is handsomely photographed in a late noir look that's quite sharply-etched. It looks good in widescreen.

Edward Underdown and Paul Daneman are about the only actors I recognized from other films. Eddie Byrne has been in a number of films I've seen, but he hadn't yet registered with me. He has a big and leading part here as a journalist seeking the story behind Underdown's disappearance after apparently having been slain. Two attractive ladies were friendly with Underdown, adding mystery and interest: Clarissa Stolz and singer Penelope Horner.

This series entry plays as a thoroughly Wallace kind of story and stands well among others in the series.
