Another user comment on another Maxwell Reed film told of his eyebrows, gave me my summary title, which had me smiling.He certainly worked them vigorously in this film noir of an early post war racketeer, returning commando servicemen, (Ronald Howard/Hector Ross) and the longstanding girlfriend who has been faithful all during the war (the late tragic Anne Crawford).What made me smile was seeing Sid James playing a nightclub pianist called Nixon.It was films like this which established his acting credentials and which Tony Hancock envied in their early comic TV/radio collaborations.
Nasty Jackie (Christine Norden) who plays the nightclub singer, sticks Ronald Howard's commando knife into Maxwell Reed's chest and kills him out of pique because he didn't love her enough.How will Ronald establish his innocence, perhaps Anne can help?This is an above average 1947 British produced film noir which I awarded 7/10.
