All rather predictable
31 January 2010 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

this is a fairly average entry in the series.The problem is that the story is on very familiar ground so that it is very easy to guess what is going to happen next.The best films in this series are those which leave you guessing to the very end.This film is to do with a cosmetics firm which has financial troubles which according to Alfred Burke leaves them with only one alternative which is to burn down the factory.The only problem is that the staff don't know that.So you can guess at the ramifications.During the course of the evening in question Burke organises a film showing to cover his tracks.Heuses the Bell & Howeel Filmosound projector which i once owned.It always seemed to be in need of repair but i have fond memories of it.
