A Limp Thriller Ambles to its End
26 June 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Derek Farr shows up at La Scala in the closings days of the Second World War and noodles around on the piano. He reminisces about Russian-born Marta Lamarr and how, when he was a reporter, he got her out of jail, proposed to her, and she disappeared. Some time later, his wanderings bring him to Teheran, where she has become an adventuress. Something odd is going on, so he investigates, and...

This post-war British Italian production looks like someone had seen late-war programmers like THE MASK OF DIMITRIOS and said "I can do that too!" Unfortunately, they lacked a novel by Eric Ambler and the wonderful eccentric character actors that Jean Negulesco directed. Only Manning Whiley as the satanically-bearded and elegant villain and John Slater as the Russian military attache -- with the on-the-nose name "Soviesky" offer any flair; nor is there any sense of tension brought to this nominal thriller, just people wandering around, doing things.

Cinematographer Ubaldo Arata offers some nice film noir camera work, but this limp effort didn't do anything worthwhile for anyone's career --- or for its audience.
