Are You Being Serious
24 December 2015 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

It is rather difficult to know whether this quota quickie is being serious.With Harry Fowler as a hired thug and Paul Whitsun-Jones as the gang boss difficult to know.Then you have Sabrina making her film debut and Frank Thornton as a doctor you will find it difficult to take it seriously in any event.Probably the only one playing it straight is Paul Carpenter who played the same character in loads of British B films.The film is based on Stock car racing which had been introduced into this country in the fifties.It is fairly inconsequential,and no doubt played the bottom half of a bill on one of the circuits.Really difficult to write a lot more about this film
