Glum B movie doesn't involve.
10 January 2002 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Drab forties support only occasionally achieves some of the mystery atmosphere of the detective series movies - cut price noir. The unappealing middle aged cast work through a dumb plot about sinister stage magician Lowe lusting after married Rogers.The setting are quite elaborate and the crew tries for a few attention getting images ineffectually.
