The Cheaper The Producers, The Gaudier The Patter
1 August 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Fleet Street reporter Dermot Walsh gets handed an assignment no one else on staff will touch: a hat check girl at a minor club has committed suicide.Write a nice human-interest story on her and how she came to be so filled with despair. As Walsh investigates, he finds a lot of money, a tie to an escort racket and much else.

It's a cheap Danziger Brothers second feature that tells its story in the laziest manner possible, from showing the audience a street sign to a voice-over by Walsh that explains why he's doing what he's doing. The hoods are obviously hoods, using strained, slangy metaphors. Hazel Court plays Walsh' girlfriend; Michael Caine is reputed to be present, but I wasn't interested enough to look closely, nor did his usually distinctive voice draw my attention.
