Re.make of Doss House
13 October 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is a remake of Baxters 1933 film Doss House.Most of his career was spent making second features which had a central theme of a community coming together to help one of their group in trouble.The book issued by the BFI in conjunction with the NFT season was aptly titled The Common Touch.There is a very entertaining cameo by Bud Flanagan,who starred in a number of films for Baxter.It is an entertaining film and well worth viewing.
