The life of a signalman
16 October 2018 | by AAdaSCSee all my reviews

Railway sigmalman Robert Newton (Bert) witnesses a murder one night whilst at his post. He sees William Hartnell (Jim) push another man to his death into a river. This man was carrying a suitcase and Newton recovers the suitcase to find it full of cash - £5,000 in total. What does Newton do next?

It's quite an entertaining film that is acted well with several story lines intertwining. French carnival performer Simone Simon (Camelia) provides the love interest whilst Hartnell is after the suitcase of cash and is on Newton's tail.

If I found a suitcase with £5,000, I'd keep it. No need to think about that part. How to spend it becomes the issue. What does Newton do.....? ..............Doh!
