Nigel Davenport tries to discredit prosecuting lawyer
23 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Return to Sender" (1963) has a noir plot that makes use of several noir devices, including love triangles, false identity, blackmail, and the frame. It's hard to jam all of this into a one hour film, but this sure tries.

Acting, tension, production values and photography are all good. In fact we have two seasoned actors present who are always interesting and whose work even this American knows. They are Nigel Davenport and Geoffrey Keen. Davenport plays a crook who has engineered a fraud. Keen plays a lawyer for the prosecution. Jennifer Daniel is another familiar actress and she plays Keen's daughter. The goal of Davenport is to discredit Keen and for this purpose he uses William Russell, who underplays his part nicely.

There will be one twist that's particularly jarring, but upon further reflection it may pass muster to a degree. There is some preparation for it because the character does some things earlier in the story that are revealing. Actions speak louder than words. However, this twist still involves a very big coincidence that's not believable.
