Second last of the series, but one of the top entries in entertainment
7 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

The British "Edgar Wallace" series reversed the usual trend of series films in that the entries actually got better rather than worse, as the series progressed. In its last days, it was very good indeed. This entry, based on the novel, The Breaking Point, was the second last and I'd give it the comparatively high rating of 74%. It was distinguished by highly competent acting led by Ray Barrett (a much under-rated actor who should have enjoyed a far better career. In fact, he was all set to play Merryll Manning in "Merryl Manning On the Rim of Heaven" when the movie was abandoned just a few days before it was to go into production on location in Tenterfield, New South Wales). "To Have and To Hold" also has an interesting script, crisp location photography, fairly imaginative direction by Herbert Wise, and remarkably inventive film editing by Derek Holding. Casting director: Ronald Curtis. Make-up: Stella Morris. Music: Bernard Ebbinghouse. Title music: Michael Carr. Assistant director: Ted Lewis. Costumes designed by Eileen Welch. Set continuity: Marjorie Owens. Sound editor: Brian Blamey. Production manager: Ron Fry. Sound recording: Sidney Rider. I know that Gladys Locking was also in the movie's production team, but I'm not sure in what capacity.
