The Verdict: enjoyable but implausible.
8 December 2013 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Verdict is typical of the Edgar Wallace films that were made quickly and cheaply in the early 1960s in Britain. The main story is not credible but the film is so tightly edited that the audience does not notice until the film has ended.

An American gangster has been deported to England but when he arrives a police detective informs him that he is suspected of murdering a man several years previously. The gangster demands that a colleague try to corrupt members of the jury. His colleague is reluctant but as he investigates various possibilities, an idea occurs to him. An idea also occurs to the gangster's mistress. Each idea produces a plot twist at the end of the film.

The Verdict has an interesting cast, three of whom later appeared in James Bond films: Zena Marshall, Paul Stassino and Cec Linder. Nigel Davenport plays the gangster's partner.

As was always the case with this series of Edgar Wallace films, The Verdict was well photographed.
